Although Australia have only been invited to participate in 2015, should they win in Vienna, they will join forces with a European city to organise the 2016 contest, and Australia will once again participate in the contest.
Australia will join the United Kingdom, Spain, Germany, France and Italy to for a new ‘Big 6’ for the 2015 contest, and therefore are granted a pass to the final on the 23rd of May.
