A World First- Digital Birth Certificate
Australians would have access to a digital birth certificate under a cross-jurisdictional plan spearheaded by the NSW government.

Celebrate Our Unique Australian Heritage
Opportunity exists to pivot from the divisive debate over Australia Day to one that respects and builds on the heritage of all the groups that makeup today’s Australian community.Noel Pearson and the Referendum Council have proposed a model of ‘three great streams’ to acknowledge the different but equally important core groups who make up the Australian population:·      The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures; ·      The British institutions and histories which are the foundations of our liberal democratic system; ·      The rich range of other cultures, faiths and ethnic backgrounds that contribute to our multicultural society
