Australia's National Identity

When such questions as "What is an Australian? What does an Australian look like? Or behave?  are analyzed, it raises a degree of ambiguity, especially when we try to define the boundaries of being an Australian.

National Identity can be defined as, a claim made about the collective personality of a culture, with distinctive attitudes and values- leading to forms of different behaviors. The definition should include; common language, common perceptions, sharing of traditions, how people perceive them and more importantly, how they see themselves when placed amongst other nations. An identity cannot be adopted; instead it is created, within a certain space, in a certain period of time.
