Vietnam created problems for Australia. Australian troop losses in WWI and WWII had instilled a strong belief that Australia was being bled dry by fighting wars that really did not have meaning on the homefront. Sending Australian troops to Vietnam was a controversial deceision, and was seen as getting involved once again "over there". When Vietnam fell, "boat people" fleeing communism made a significant impact on Australia and its economy and stirred up resenment and another homefront struggle to keep Asian immigrants out.

Australia's relationship with its regional neighbours has constantly changed over the last century. The early introduction of restrictive immigration policies put Australia at odds with some of its neighbours, tainting relationships for decades. World War II and later regional conflicts further strained these relationships. However, Australia emerged with a much clearer sense of its place in the region.
