This article offers an analysis and description of the notion of Australian space as a country within historical and critical-cultural imaginaries. By moving through Australian spaces as produced, heterotopic spaces and places, country becomes the shorthand for multiple Australias. From the bar to the beach, maps to icons, city to suburbs and beyond, "country" is at once the discursive staging of homogeneity in a postmodern Australia, but at the same time a relationship between nature and human obligation.
