Abstract/Summary • The thematic foci of Australian Indigenous housing literature are: housing design, the nature of occupation and use of housing, housing management, home ownership, and the links between housing and a range of well-being outcomes, for example, health. • The thematic gaps of Australian Indigenous housing literature are: the sustainability of Indigenous housing and living environments, Indigenous control of housing provision, comparison of Indigenous and mainstream housing outcomes, the housing pathways and preferences of Indigenous people, and the links between demographic change and housing outcomes. • The characteristics of Australian Indigenous housing research are that it is: multi-disciplinary; multi-method; focussed on remote locations, and; that Indigenous people have played an important role in the conduct of the research as participants and research assistants. • Research conducted between 1970 and 2000 is characterised by a focus on matters internal to particular living environments, such as cooking activities and sleeping arrangements – that is, the activities of individuals and households. • Research from 2000 to 2006 also considers matters that range across individual living environments – that is, activities across regions and states and at the national level.
