A republic vote was narrowly lost in the 90s, and since then Australia has become even more independent and has developed an even greater sense of our own national identity.

The important lessons from the past have made the Movement even stronger today by focusing on 1) bipartisan support, 2) unity among republicans, and 3) grassroots campaigning.
