2014 Australian Reconciliation Barometer


The fourth edition of the Barometer shows that there is much goodwill for reconciliation. The vast majority of Australians believe the relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians is important. Additionally, most Australians believe that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples hold an important and significant place as the First Australians.

Despite these positive results, there are areas that need significant improvement. For example, we do not agree on a set of facts about our shared history, particularly in relation to the colonisation of Australia. Further, the media continues to be a key source of information about Indigenous people for most Australians
