Although first appearing as a police constable in the television series No Hiding Place in 1959, Hawkins did not begin acting in television until the early 1970s frequently appearing on a number of police dramas including Matlock Police, Division 4, Homicide and Bluey. In 1978, he made his film debut in a minor role in Brian de Palma's The Fury. During the next two years, he starred in the television mini-series Against the Wind and The Last Outlaw before appearing in the soap opera Prisoner. Introduced as Bob Morris, the father of inmate Tracey Morris (Sue Devine), he eventually became a recurring character after the on-screen marriage of Bob Morris to Meg Jackson (Elspeth Ballantyne). He stayed with the series on an irregular basis until 1982, when he was written out entirely. However, that same year, he made a cameo appearace with a number of his fellow Prisoner co-stars in the film Kitty and the Bagman.

Making a guest appearance on Carson's Law, he appeared in the films Phar Lap and Strikebound before joining the cast of Special Squad as Greg Smith, a role he played from 1984 to 1985. Playing a supporting role in the 1987 film The Lighthorsemen, during the late 1980s he also made appearances on The Flying Doctors, Inside Running and the 1989 television movie Darlings of the Gods which featured cameo appearances of several other former Prisoner co-stars.

During the early 1990s, he appeared on Kelly, Bony and The Damnation of Harvey McHugh as well as in police dramas Janus and Mercury. In recent years, Hawkins has had recurring roles in Ocean Girl, Tales of the South Seas and, most notably, as Frank Di Angelo in The Saddle Club.
