Abstract: There are issues with living in remote regions of Australia that arise from the different forms of social relationships. In this paper we outline three forms of relationships that are useful in teasing out issues when living in remote regions. We then consider several ways that relationship issues might arise in remote communities and some solutions through examining the interactions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, settlers and service providers. We also show how a graphic drawing of relationships from the perspective of remote communities can be utilised to help communities to plan their own solutions.
