How did the Vietnam War affect Australia's view of itself as a nation and as a member of the world beyond its own shores?
Australia was divided over its involvement in the Vietnam war many feeling that Australian troops should not be used to help bolster a corrupt American puppet government in a war of aggression on behalf of the United states. As it turned out Australians learned hat to be a part of the US sphere of influence we have to get involved in these wars from time to time.

North Vietnam was the scene of the AIR WAR during the Vietnam War. N. Vietnam was bombed by air units from the US Navy and US Air Force. US Marine Corps units bombed in South Vietnam in support of their ground Marines. North Vietnam defended itself in North Vietnam with SAM sites and NVAF MiG 17, 19, and MiG 21 jet interceptors.
Generally, the struggle in South East Asia (Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia) goes by the name of The Second Indochina War. Inside the US, it is usually known as the Vietnam War, though this is inaccurate, as the war encompassed more than just Vietnam (or, for that matter, was fought not just in Vietnam itself).
There was a NORTH Vietnam and a SOUTH Vietnam, and they fought each other, the normal starting date used by many historians is 1961. However, North and South Vietnam were separate nations. They were never just one Nation called VIETNAM until 1975. Consequently, this was no civil war. A civil war is ONE country fighting itself.
America's policy was that we had spent enough lives and money trying to save a corrupt and inept country that couldn't defend itself (South Vietnam). Now it was time to let the inevitable happen, and that was to let South Vietnam fall to North Vietnam. The USA did it's best, but, we couldn't do anymore.
The USA wanted South Vietnam to be a free and independent nation, separate and apart from the communist North, the way South Korea is independent of communist North Korea. The main problem with that idea, was that South Vietnam was a corrupt and ineptly run government that was unable to defend itself when the USA pulled out in 1973; and S. Vietnam fell in 55 days to an invasion by N. Vietnam in 1975.
The Vietnam War was a proxy war that was fought as during the Cold War as a part of the policy of containment. The USSR was supporting Ho Chi Minh's communist regime in Northern Vietnam and the USA did not want communism to spread farther than the USSR itself and so they fought against them on the side of Southern Vietnam.
Flow of men/material couldn't be stemmed. War couldn't be isolated due to geography/communist superpowers. The USA was not beaten by the Communists in Vietnam. For example, in December 1972, American B-52s were bombing North Vietnam and there was very little North Vietnam could do about it. The USA gave up on the inept and corrupt government of South Vietnam. South Vietnam was unable to defend itself, as South Korea has since 1953.
