Australian National University has found that 90% of Australians have pride in their country – especially for achievements in the arts, sciences and sports.
Australians are worried about immigration, job security and the economy.
We are not so proud of our democracy, our social security system, our place in the world and how the most vulnerable are treated.
So we are proud of being proud but of what are we proud, perhaps we are not so sure.

Aussieness no longer relies on being born here. Instead, characteristics like speaking English and “feeling Australian” are taken to be more relevant to pride.
