Tony Abbott claims he has spent a week a year in remote indigenous communities.
Abbott would make an unusual prime minister. He told Sunday's campaign launch that while in the job he would "continue to spend a week a year in a remote indigenous community as I have done over the past decade".
As he put it, "if they're good enough for people to live in, they should be good enough for a prime minister to stay in".
But has he really spent a week a year in a remote indigenous community for 10 years?
Extensive records are kept of political leaders, so it's easy to check. He has certainly spent more time in remote indigenous communities than any previous prime ministerial aspirant.
Abbott is able to help out.
Here's what Abbott told a cultural festival in Arnhem Land earlier in the campaign: "By 2007, despite 14 years in the Parliament, despite then nine years as a minister, I figured out that I had visited dozens and dozens of Aboriginal places but never spent more than 18 hours in a single one of them."
"So with Noel Pearson's help, I tried to rectify that situation. In 2008, I spent three weeks as a teacher's aide in Coen in Cape York, working in the local school. In 2009, I spent 10 days as a truancy officer in Aurukun on Cape York, working with the truancy team."
Since becoming Opposition Leader in late 2009 he has faced greater demands on his time.
Parliamentary expenditure and travel records as well as Abbott's own records show he spent some nights in and around Alice Springs in March 2010 - when he and his party infamously got lost on some quad bikes. After the 2010 election he spent "one or two nights" in Normanton in Cape York where he helped build a library and went out with indigenous rangers.
He visited the remote settlement of Santa Teresa near Alice Springs in April 2011, and in October 2011 worked as a builder's mate for three days near Hopevale in Cape York. Last year he spent four days helping refurbish a school library at Aurukun.
Does it stack up?
About round eight weeks in the past 10 years is not quite the "week a year" over the past decade claimed by Abbott. But it is close, probably closer than for any other member of parliament.
Abbott began his work in indigenous communities in 2007.
PolitiFact rates Abbott's claim "half true".
