Home And House Types In Australia

In Australia many of our children have a uniquely Australian lifestyle, and we aim here to bring you insight into what being a child in Australia and growing up "Down Under" is all about.

In Australia we live in many different styles of dwellings.

In the cities, the houses are often similar to many other cities in the world with a brick veneer over timber frame being the most common type of construction. Similarly, there is a smaller percentage of double brick dwellings and homes made from concrete blocks.

Once you get out of the city, there is often a much more diverse range of buildings with many homes on the coast starting their life as a weekender or holiday home.

The styles of houses and how that impacts our children is the feature of this page and soon we will be updating with more information and photos.
