Liz Kernohan Conference Centre

The Liz Kernoham conference facility is the new social and academic centre of the Camden campus. Designed to be a landmark building the facility accommodates a tiered conference auditorium for 250 people for both public and university functions.

The building has been designed with environmentally sustainable principles and materials which have been carefully selected together with considered siting and spatial planning. The facility is a benchmark for green development. Parallel with its environment consciousness, the form sits as a delight in the landform and is a clear expression of its function. The building services include separate air conditioning systems to allow the foyer to operate in a full natural ventilation or a sealed air conditioned mode. Excessive rain fall and hail storms in the area resulted in the deletion of down pipes replacing them with an open zinc sluice draining to the site dam and then used for irrigation.

    What a fantastic building in Liz Kernohan’s memory. She was the niece of my great aunt Annie McGuiness who lived with Liz.
    I have fond memories of visiting their home in Camden and hearing about all of Liz’s involvement in the Uni and the community. A great tribute to her.
