VISION FOR AUSTRALIA
“The Can-Do Country”
Australia is facing a crisis. This issue is the absence of a shared vision for what our country will look like 50 years from now. Without a clear vision our efforts lack focus, bold decisions are put off and we’re greatly weakened on the world stage. Choose any number of examples,
- In what fields are we the undisputed world leaders?
- Who is our most senior representative at the UN? (hint… it’s not the Secretary-General!)
- Why hasn’t an Australian ever won a Nobel Peace Prize?
- What is our most inspiring example of world-class infrastructure built since the Sydney Opera House? (finished over 40 years ago)
The first thing I propose is the roll-out of nothing less than a New National Identity.
As of 1st August 2014;
“I move that Australia become known as The Can-Do Country”.

The Can Do Country stands for getting-in and getting the job done, no matter what. We need to come together and Take a Stand on crucial topics not receiving adequate national attention. Current stands include, The Future Population of Australia, Tax Tagging, Development of a High Speed Train Network (the HyperTran), New Energy and The Reconciliation Declaration.
Australians are invited to Take a Stand on issues they feel are of national importance. The fact is, Australia needs a new plan. It needs to be bigger, better and bolder. It needs to inspire and empower us, and our children, to create the greatest-ever Vision for Australia.
