"What are the rights and responsibilities of an Australian citizen?"

Great question; however, rights and responsibilities can be interpreted in many ways. Sometimes these are defined by Australian and international law, sometimes they are not.

The main organisation that deals with human rights in Australia is the Australian Human Rights Commission – this might be a good place to start your research.

If you want to know about responsibilities and Australian citizenship, take a look at the Department of Immigration and Border Protection's webpage Learn About Citizenship.
