We are part of a global community of technologists, hacking for social change.

RHoK Australia runs twice yearly hackathons in Melbourne, Brisbane, and Sydney. We work with social entrepreneurs, charities, and non-profits, to help solve challenges facing society. Over 48 hours our volunteer hackers, technologists, designers, and creative thinkers co-develop solutions that may not otherwise be realised.

Our Impact.

Since 2011 we've gathered over 500 hackers and helped over 100 organisations find tech enabled solutions to pressing social problems.

We are widely acknowledged in Australia as one of the pioneers in this space. Our unique combination of hackathons and smaller follow up events ensure that we get our solutions across the finish line and positively impact the wider community.

Here are just a few of the charities, non-profits, social entrepreneurs, and community groups we’ve worked with.

Our Partners

We're very grateful to have the support of DiUS at a national level. Without our National partners and local supporters we can't help others.

Successful partnerships are the heart of RHoK
