Abstract/Summary The suggested liveability indicators based on an examination of liveability through an age-friendly lens highlight the importance of considering liveability across the life course. They are recommended for consideration in future liveability assessments of the Indigo and Towong Shires. The Healthy Liveable Cities Group at RMIT University would be please to work further on this project with the Upper Hume PCP to assess liveability across the lifespan for the rural areas. It is also understood that use of these indicators will not answer or capture all of the liveability issues (both strengths and weaknesses) in these rural areas but this initial pilot project is expected to provide useful evidence for planning and advocacy into the future. Indicators effectively provide a tip of the iceberg assessment of issues (Davern et al., 2017) and are designed to start important community conversations and link research, policy and action.
