This project explores the impact of digital inclusion challenges for low-income Indigenous families living on Mornington Island, a remote Aboriginal community in the Cape York Peninsula. It was collaboratively developed to explore the  experiences of the Mornington Island community, and to develop a research methodology led by the community, for their needs, toward giving the community voice and power in this research.

Over a series of visits to the Island in 2022, researchers engaged with families and local organisations to understand how Aboriginal families use and access the internet, and how this impacts access to government and social services, education (particularly relevant as there is no high school on the island), e-health and e-commerce.
