Hi beautiful people!
I'm working on an assignment talking about Australia's changing national identity in the EYES OF THE WORLD. I need to look at a particular event and or events as a way to highlight this change.
The problem is that I was thinking the assignment related to internal rather than international identity and have therefore gone of on a rather wierd tangent. Are there any really pivotal events that you know of that changed Australia's international identity?
Preferably something to do with the Great Depression as I have already undertaken a substantial amount of research in this area.
Thanks a heap

As I skimmed this article, a few thoughts hit me. First was the 300,000 Brits who immigrated to Australia. Exports also added to the country's international identity. The advent of planes that could cross the ocean also has helped.
