Summary There are (at least!) two remarkable things about Australia: one is that it is the driest inhabited continent on the planet and the second that it has the largest houses in the world. The relationship between these two facts serves as one way of understanding its settlement patterns and the character of its suburbs, foregrounding the desires that underpin their cultural economies.
