One easy way to find out is to search via Google for 'racism' and '[name of country]'. You can then peruse different examples by selecting 'Web' (default search), 'News', 'Videos', and so forth. You will find the range of information about any country you search, from news stories of bashings and discrimination, to scholarly articles on manifestations in societal norms. Every country has something shameful going on, and Australia is no exception.

I have a few friends who relocated to Aussie and I have never heard them complain. Some may suffer from isolation due to cultural gaps and language but nothing else.

Based on my own experience, Aussie businessmen are usually very nice, quite open-minded and on occasions very funny once you get more familiar with them.
Most importantly, when we get to talk about their life, they all seem to have friends who come from Europe, Asia, and islands.

I would not think that Australia is a racist country, and I actually look forward to go there one day.

Except for the very few, most Australians are very friendly & loving people

My experience, which is not representative, is that there's far less political correctness.

Twice, I've found myself in the receiving end of very vintage hate speech in very public, crowded places in broad daylight. The first (Perth CBD) was from a man who was upset that I'd interrupted his domestic violence session, though can't be surprised since same crowd ignored the violence. The second (Sydney, Oxford St) was from a man who very loudly berated and threatened to kill me for supposedly following him; the attack lasted long enough for me to snap a picture,call 000, etc. Many walked by and did nothing. The only person who helped was a pop up shopkeeper (from Iraq). Perhaps it says more about bystander effect, but I still found the silence more hurtful.

Parts of Oxford street in Sydney were always best avoided at one time.

This was once said about Oxford St.

He says very few fights are premeditated but tend to be "thrill assaults", often homophobic or racially-motivated,

Most other Sydney areas seemed pretty safe though.

Been living in NSW, QLD, and SA. QLD has tons of redneck police compare to NSW and SA. People in Australia are generally pretty layback, while many people do actually look down on Asian though keep that to themselves most of the time or limit to their mouth.

I am a tall, very white Australian man. I have always been friendly, respectful and culturally aware. And I have experienced racism against me in many Asian and even European countries. So it isn't confined to just Caucasian populations, just depends if you have the bad luck to come across someone with "that" attitude.
