SITE UPDATE | 4-APRIL-2014 | Site update to come

Please note that this site is no longer being updated regularly. In it's place, we plan to build two separate sites:


  • Cohousing Australia ( will be a smaller, more static site with specific information on the Cohousing model and communities in Australia built on this model.
  • Australian Intentional Communities ( is envisioned as a large, dynamic site with logins for community members and the ability for projects and communities to be added. It will also include information about upcoming conferences.
In the meantime, please contact:
  • Iain () if you have questions about Cohousing
  • Mark () if you are interested in other kinds of Intentional Communities in Australia

Gilo from NSW writes:


After 2 1/2 years of process we are now a step closer in realizing our vision of building a cohousing neighbourhood. We are currently negotiating the purchase of a site in Hazelbrook, BM, minutes walk from the shops and the train station.


This is an invitation to attend our open meeting to be held Sunday 5th of May, where we will present the nuts and bolts of the project.
