This commentary by Rural and Remote Health Australasian regional editors looks beyond the present time of gloom to opportunities for this young academic discipline to flourish and increase in impact. Steps towards solutions for each of these major global challenges may well be made in the coming years by rural health research conducted in regional and remote Australia.
