Think tank for the public good

Paul Barratt, Chair of Australia21

“One of the best ways to demonstrate concern about our country and our community is to contribute to shaping their future.” Paul Barratt AO, Chair of Australia21

Welcome to Australia21


Australia21 is an independent, not for profit think tank.

We promote fair, sustainable and inclusive public policy through evidence-based research.

We tackle real-world ‘wicked’ problems – social, economic and environmental issues that defy simple solutions.

Australia21 is not politically aligned. We actively encourage all Parties, Independents, interest groups and members of the public to support our research and adopt our recommendations.

Get informed. Be heard. Shape the future.
