Alex Bakunowicz

Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics

Alex Bakunowicz arrived in the Northern Territory in May 1979. He came from Melbourne, where he was a cadet surveyor with the Victorian Department of Administration.

He joined the government here as a chainman and quickly progressed to a fully-fledged licensed surveyor, sitting on the Surveyors Board of the NT from 2012 to 2016. Alex is still a senior surveyor with the Northern Territory Government today.

Alex reflects fondly on his illustrious career with the NTPS, where he’s worked on many of its major projects, such as the Adelaide to Darwin Railway, gas and electricity long-line surveys and the birth of Palmerston.
