Seventy per cent of Australians agree that Australia is the best country in the world to live in, but enthusiasm for our wide brown land goes down with age.
Just 24 per cent of 18-24-year-olds “strongly agree” that Australia is the best country, compared with 61 per cent of older Australians.
Young Australians were also more likely to have a neutral view, compared with only 8 per cent of those aged 75 and over.
The finding comes from the ABC’s Australia Talks National Survey of more than 54,000 Australians.
Older Australians are more patriotic about Australia being the best country in the world
