Over more than 30 years, the 50th Anniversary Reunion Luncheons organised by Convocation have become a key annual event in the UWA Calendar. The guests are graduates from all the faculties, so that a wonderful mix of personalities and life experience is drawn together. The Reunions are always well- attended with many graduates flying in from interstate and overseas to meet up with former friends, Convocation Council members and other University officials.

A significant element of each 50th Anniversary Reunion celebration is a Reunion booklet produced by Convocation containing brief biographies and profiles of graduates. This has proven to be a source of considerable pleasure and interest. It is also a valuable historical record of the many and varied contributions made by UWA graduates to society.

Each year, a committee of volunteers assists in the organisation of the function.
