CountryMinded has now merged with the Australian Democrats to extend and enhance the political mission to restore an uncompromised voice for rural and regional Australia on the premise that:

  • A viable rural sector is vital to the future of the Country
  • Increasingly the Country‚Äôs economy is reliant on a viable rural sector
  • The policies that will sustainably resolve issues facing rural Australia will benefit all sectors of the economy
  • The current political representation does not and cannot effectively reflect the needs of rural and regional Australia

We are a values based party committed to pragmatic evidence based policy, political statesmanship and real leadership to provide a meaningful and effective political conscience.

CountryMinded will effectively become the dedicated division within the Australian Democrats know as the Country Democrats and will champion rural and regional issues on an ongoing basis.
