HIA is excited to launch HOUSING online, a dedicated website for HIA’s national flagship magazine for the Australian residential building industry.

Here you’ll find all of our HOUSING articles from each print edition, plus a wealth of up-to-the-minute news, expert commentary, special features, profiles and more published in between issues.

HOUSING is one of Australia’s most respected industry publications, showcasing innovation in design and construction, inspiring housing projects, the latest products, future trends and in-depth analyses. Our goal is to inspire and inform Australia’s building professionals, as well as showcase the talent from within the ranks of HIA’s membership to the public.

HOUSING’s information-rich platform is designed for anyone looking for reputable content about home building – whether you’re in trade, a supplier or are commencing your home building or renovation journey.
