    Outreach and engagement activities have been core functions of the Australian National University Department of Nuclear Physics for many years. Staff and students of the Department play an important role in educating local high school students, Australian Federal Government employees and the general public. As the 'national' university, we also accept a social responsibility to undertake endeavours that align with Australia's broader strategic priorities. One of these is to make a positive, sustained contribution to the overall growth and development of our geographical neighbours. Here, I report on the existing program of local outreach at the ANU Heavy Ion Accelerator Facility, selected international engagement activities and comment on opportunities for future growth.
