Bob Day

The contribution of Bob Day to the Australian community extends far beyond his business interests as one of Australia’s leading home builders. His strong interest in youth unemployment, homelessness, urban planning, federalism and industrial relations is reflected in a wide range of appointments which include: National President of the Housing Industry Association; Founder of Independent Contractors of Australia; Director of the Centre for Independent Studies; Member of the National Work for the Dole Advisory Committee; Chairman of North East Vocational College; and Founder of Oz Homes Foundation

On Australia Day 2003 he was appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia for service to the housing industry, to social welfare - particularly housing the homeless - and to the community. Later the same year he was awarded the Centenary of Federation medal for service to housing and charity. In 2005 he was awarded the Pride of Australia medal for ‘Community Spirit’ for restoring the village of Houghton and creating the Soldiers Memorial Wall and Remembrance Walk.

Bob’s company, Home Australia owns some of the industry’s best known brand names including Homestead Homes in SA, Collier Homes in WA, Ashford Homes in Victoria, Newstart Homes in Qld and Huxley Homes in NSW.
