Housing in rural remote Australia has always posed a number of management challenges due to the challenging geography and climate in many regions of the continent. These housing challenges tend to be augmented when applied to the Aboriginal population. Evidence suggests that current housing provision for Aboriginal people in remote/rural Australia is inappropriate due to its lack of cultural relevance, incompatibility with the geographic landscape, poor design and state of disrepair, and its inability to cater to the functional impairment of Aboriginal older people and people with disabilities (Fien et al., 2008a; Pholeros, 2002; Taylor, 2002; Torzillo et al., 2008).
