I have been here 14 years and have never taken out citizenship can't see much point in it unless you can give me a very good reason to have it.

ian, only reason I could see would be if you were leaving the country to work abroad for a few years, with a view to returning to Australia in the future. Would save you the hassle of maintaining substantial ties to Australia in the meantime to get an RRV. (This is why I'll probably take it out once I'm eligible)
Or if there was actually someone in the elections worth voting for.
I'm not in Oz & dont have citizenship etc... but
I am English & I now live in Republic of Ireland & therefore, since I married an Irish man, am entitled to an Irish passport!!!
However, although I dont live in UK I am still English & that will never change... it will make no difference where I choose to live, I was still born in a hospital in Leeds!!! My children have Irish passports cause they were born here in Ireland.
When i get citizenship in Oz... to get an Australian passport means I can get in & out of Oz without hassles of having to apply for a 176 visa again!!! but i will still be an English person so am likely to keep my English passport too???
I love to experience new things & am excited to teach my children that anything is possible & the world is their oyster... I am really looking forward to moving to Australia as I love the country... but that doesnt mean to say I will stay there for the rest of my life, who knows what will happen in the future!
As previously mentioned by someone... it is personal choice... I dont have anything against the UK... I just choose not to live there!!!
Arrived Nov 11... Living & Loving Life!!! 2 girls at Hallett Cove Child Care & Hallett Cove East School... Hubby working... and im a Midwifery Student at Flinders Uni!!!
I think its a matter of personal choice
For me im Cornish and never will be english , i was brought up speaking Kernewek before learning to speak english, my flag is the St Piran, Kernow will always be my true home and always will in my heart be BUT i am in Australia now and intergrating and contributing into Australia and the Australian way of life.
Australia has given me my visa and a chance to do something with it, to me the only true way and the final step of fully intergating is to gain citizen ship and hold an Australian passport which then i may or may not keep my british passport.
Even if i do surrender my britsh passport i will still be Cornish and thats something i dont need a passport to prove.
Not sure if NSW is any different to SA, but my neice was not entitled to the HEX for university, as they haven't got citizenship yet and are still on permanent residency status. They had to pay full University fees as a result. If they had waited a year when they had citizenship, they would of saved thousands!!

I will keep both my Aussie and British passport, I think it's pretty cool to have dual citizenship.
One of best friends here is Danish and he would have to relinquish his Danish citizenship to become an Aussie, and he has no intentions of doing that. Whilst it's a tough stance, I have respect for his decision. I wonder how many of us would choose to stay as a PR rather than give up British Citizenship. Even though my partner is Australian and I have no intention of moving back, I'm not sure I could do it.
So your niece wouldn't have saved thousands, she'd still have had to pay them, just not upfront. (as far as I understand the system)
