Hawker is a Canberra suburb in the district of Belconnen.  It is named after Charles Hawker, Member of the House of Representatives from 1929 to1938 and Federal minister in 1932. Streets in the suburb are named according to the theme of Northern Territory pastoral stations.

The centrepiece of the suburb is a group centre where there are many small businesses and shops, such as takeaways, newsagents and a hotel.  The area supports three schools: Hawker Primary, Belconnen High, and Hawker College, which is a specialist senior high school. Combined, these schools cover students from preschool to Year 12.

Hawker is a popular location for sport, and includes the multi-purpose Hawker Playing Fields, Hawker Enclosed Oval, a small soccer stadium, centres for tennis and lawn bowls, and the Hawker International Softball Centre.
