Australian Nationalism Information Database

The Australian Nationalism Information Database was established in March 1998 to promote Australia's National Identity and Culture, and to expose mass immigration, Multiculturalism, and Asianisation as major threats to our environment, our People, and our way of life. A whole range of publications and articles are provided on these issues, as well as on other issues of interest to Australian Nationalists. Also, information is provided on how to contact Nationalist organisations within Australia.
