Seasonal workers’ accommodation is a contentious issue for seasonal workers, employers and local government. Changes in regional housing markets have greatly increased the cost and reduced the availability of accommodation, and in many coastal locations seasonal workers are competing for housing with long-term residents and tourists. This research project analyses barriers to safely accommodating seasonal workers in regional Australia.
