Australia certainly is a home away from home (US). Plenty of Aussies reciprocally tell me the same when in US.

Although UK, Ireland and NZ are also our cultural kin, outside US/Canada, I'd say Americans probably gel the best in Australia.

All americans are welcome here. Our boys have fought and died along side American service men in EVERY war since world war 2. They will continue to do so in defense of freedom and democracy till hell freezes over. OH and our indonesian neighbors are hypocrites and childish. The idiocy shown by the indonesian politicians AND its people ( burning flags etc etc ) is PATHETIC. While it moans " oh woe is me " it has its own intelligence section of government yet it wont say what it does or if it surveils australian sources. WHY. It got caught last year doing just that. HYPOCITES. So far we DONATED 2 c-130s, 3 coastal patrol boats, every year it get $300+ Million in aid. We gave it 1 BILLION after the tsunami. But eh whinge like an ol cow every time you get the chance. Oh n the sectarian violence towards christians by muslims there that the police n government do NOTHING ABOUT is typical too. Now they trying to annex west papua via intimidation of locals who have no form of defence. No different to what they did in East Timor. Kill n rape. Indonesian defence force, ha ha ha ha, spineless dogs. It was good to watch them run like the cowards they are when we told them enough is enough and to get out of East Timor. They raped and murdered as much as possible b4 our troops arrived on shore. When they did arrive they ran taking all they could with them and what they couldnt take they burnt. DOGS COWARDS Australia lowers its standards everytime we deal with Indonesia.
