In a nation bound by virtues and sustained by faith –
where values that reflect our moral foundation are accepted as critical to our future
That what is best for our families is best for society;
a place where children are encouraged to believe in their dreams,
and can work hard to make them a reality.
That our country should be one where government is not an obstacle,
but an advocate and ally of its people;
for when freedom resides with responsibility,
Australia will always prosper.
In a land where determination will never succumb to apathy;
where those who receive will also give, because there is strength in community.
That sustaining freedom is not always easy;
for there will always be some who seek to oppose and restrict it.
That our nation is not for those seeking an easy path,
it is for those who dream not only of today, but of what tomorrow can be.
