Since 1945, seven million people have migrated to Australia and one in four Australians were born overseas. Over at the Marion RSL, a further 33 people became Australian Citizens and were warmly congratulated by my State and Federal colleagues, Nicolle Flint MP, the Hon David Speirs MP and Stephen Patterson MP.Read more
