This paper analyses mobilities of disadvantage through the housing pathways of low-income Australians. First, it focuses on questions of housing quality, control over residential moves and accumulation of economic, social and cultural capital through such moves. Then, it considers these themes in an empirical study of the housing pathways of low-income households through which four typical patterns are identified as ‘mobilities of disadvantage’: hectic private rental pathways; pathways of homelessness; pathways out of homeownership; and, repeat moves in and out of social housing in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland
