The Lucky Country:

Australia is a country of massive potential for all of its people. It truly is the lucky country in many ways but we all know that millions of Australians who are struggling below the poverty line don’t feel so lucky. Even many Aussies who look like they're doing well are stressed by high levels of debt and the insecurity of their job. They are worried about educating and protecting their kids, and whether their kids will find meaningful work and a fulfilling life. These are just some of the many forgotten Australians who are not getting their fair share of Australia’s wealth – our “common wealth”.

From and for the People:

The New Democracy Party stands for all Australians, not just for the privileged few. We value all people regardless of who they are or their circumstances and we believe we all have the right to meet our potential. This requires us all to cooperate so that we all benefit, and the New Democracy Party expects our Common Wealth government to take responsibility to make sure everyone has this opportunity. You have rights and you can look to a New Democracy Party government to protect those rights and to make sure the country and all who are part of it can thrive. Read More...

We stand for the many forgotten Australians who are being left behind while the privileged few explain - in economic gobblygook - why it’s the forgotten Aussies fault that they are being left behind, and why the government cannot help them.

We stand for the forgotten Australians – our old, sick and disabled – and all Australians who are not employed for whatever reason or who can’t find sufficient work hours. We will not leave any Aussie behind – it’s not the Australian way. Our common wealth is sufficient to provide work for all who wish to work and a dignified life without poverty for those who are unable to work for whatever reason.

This is your Party

The power of us - the people - is far more powerful than the people in power. If all of you who visit this website join the New Democracy Party, there is nothing we cannot achieve together.


No working Poor:

We stand for giving a helping hand to someone who is down on their luck, rather than looking down on those less fortunate than us. We believe it is the Australian way to look after Aussie battlers and wage a war on poverty not our poor. Read More...

We stand for the forgotten Australians who work hard for a living, contributing to our common wealth and wanting only to see their work fairly rewarded and recognized. Many of these Australians are working harder every year but are being left behind.

We stand for the forgotten casual and part-time workers struggling to survive on wages that don't allow them to live in a dignified way.

We stand for the forgotten Australians – our old, sick and disabled – and all Australians who are not employed for whatever reason or who can’t find sufficient work hours. We will not leave any Aussie behind – it’s not the Australian way. Our common wealth is sufficient to provide work for all who wish to work and a dignified life without poverty for those who are unable to work for whatever reason.

The privileged few, who reap all the benefits, use economic jargon to justify themselves, and then blame the rest of us for being left behind. The New Democracy Party can explain in simple language how we will have a thriving economy where everyone is rewarded well for their work, and we all have a fair share of the riches Australia offers.

We will use our finance, banking and tax systems to ensure that Australia's physical and human resources are used for the benefit of all, not just a few.

Unity through Community:

We stand for looking after your mate rather than just self-interest.

We stand for traditional Australian values like equality, fairness and a healthy suspicion and expectation that those in power should prove they are for us the people. We stand for transparency and accountability of our leaders - values that have been conveniently discarded by some privileged few - as deals are done behind closed doors in the race for personal power and riches - at the expense of our heritage. Read More...

We stand for valuing people who contribute to our common wealth rather than their individual riches, their personal power, or their political or commercial networks. So we honour our courageous service men and women who deserve much better when, through their duties, they have sustained a physical, psychological or emotional injury.

The New Democracy Party honours the many migrants and refugees that have come to our country in the hope of a better life and have contributed so much to this country. We stand for maintaining our proud tradition of giving a helping hand when it is needed so we will support refugees who come to our country seeking asylum. We will also work with other countries to find peaceful ways to resolve conflicts, so that people can be secure in their own homelands, so they do not need to risk their lives fleeing to Australia.

The New Democracy Party honours the rights of all Australians. We believe that all Aussies have a right to live a dignified life. The New Democracy Party also stands by the right of all Australians who are old and frail and / or terminally ill to have the right to a dignified death.

Donate to our Campaigns


Honouring our First Nations Peoples:

We stand for the forgotten first Australians who have been faithful stewards of this land for countless millennia and have been persistently damaged since first settlement days. We will work with the First Nations people to ensure that their inalienable rights are protected, that they are properly honoured and recognised, and that appropriate strategies are put in place to heal the wounds they have sustained.

Protecting our Heritage:

We stand for an almost forgotten Australia. A beautiful unique country that all Australians want to cherish and protect so we can share that beauty and uniqueness with our children and our grandchildren. The New Democracy Party believes in environmental protection to ensure the riches of this wonderful country are shared by all who live here now and the generations to come.

We stand for making Australia a place where all have a fair opportunity to contribute to our nation and share in its riches – its common wealth. So we believe all Australians are entitled to free access to education from preschool to tertiary education and beyond, and to free health and dental care.

Re-inventing Australian Innovation:

Australia is a country built on innovation and invention. We are a clever bunch who could do amazing things if properly supported by our government. Read More...

We will fund our world famous scientific institutions, (such as the CSIRO) so they can foster the knowledge and innovation that will make us global leaders in many fields. We will properly fund science education in schools so our children have the knowledge and critical thinking skills needed to be active citizens in a world that is full of different points of view. This education will make our children confident to experiment and take risks, which is at the heart of science, innovation and invention. We will invest (and encourage our industries to invest) in research and development so that we add expertise, technology and sustainability knowhow to our common wealth.

Maths and science are not everything though. Technical smarts can be dangerous without wisdom so equal priority will go into funding education in and expression of the humanities such as art, music, theatre, literature, history, philosophy, language and social sciences.

The New Democracy Party aims to ensure that our infrastructure: physical; digital; and cultural, provides us all with the best possible opportunities to do business, to learn, to communicate and to thrive.

Controlling our Common Wealth:

We will use our finance, banking and tax systems to ensure that Australia's physical and human resources are used for the benefit of all - not just a few.

Real Representatives not Career Politicians:

We stand for representatives who are authentically committed to these goals. Representatives who are for the people and an open and democratic Australia. It’s time for a new democracy. It’s time for real and authentic democracy and for all Aussies to thrive.
