Leverage our research to support health and wellbeing in your community

If you want to be part of the solution to improving liveability in Australia, and supporting healthy, equitable and sustainable cities for all Australians, then become a Paid Partner with us. 

You’ll be leveraging the Australian Urban Observatory’s neighbourhood liveability indicators, utilising ground breaking policy-relevant urban research linking the built environment and public health, developed by RMIT University.

You will also be investing in future research supporting development and expansion of the Australian Urban Observatory over time.

The AUO has two levels of accessibility.

All indicators to a Local Government Level, as well as the Liveability Index and Social Infrastructure Index to Suburb and Neighbourhood levels, are available without charge. 

All other Suburb and Neighbourhood indicators are available through AUO Paid Partnerships.

Available AUO Paid Partnerships


Standard partnership is for a 12-month financial year from July 1 to June 30 with pro rata funding for reduced time periods. Payments are due by June 30 annually.

For Organisations or State/Federal Government Departments just one partnership will provide access to unlimited seats for the Australian Urban Observatory. Access will be by email address, allowing multiple people with the same email suffix (i.e. all @rmit.edu.au or your relevant organsational/departmental emails) to use the Observatory.

All partnership payments are reinvested into further research and development supporting conception, testing, validation, application and data visualisation of new spatial liveability indicators across Australia.
