With Australia's ageing population, it is increasingly important to understand factors that enhance the ability of older adults to retain independence and well-being into later life. While previous research in this area has traditionally focused on the characteristics of individuals, recognition is growing regarding the importance of the social and physical environment also contributing to health and happiness. As older adults are likely to spend a substantial proportion of their time in and around their home, neighbourhoods represent a particularly significant environment for this age group. The purpose of the present study was to increase understanding of the associations between neighbourhood characteristics and ageing well, with a sample of older Australians.
