Formatted abstract
This study seeks to determine the effect of globalisation by investigating whether distance due to declining transport and transaction costs under globalisation is having either an increasingly important or less of a negative impact upon Australia's export trade over tin1e. Using a panel gravity model, this study examines Australia's export relations with twenty-five (25) countries during the period from 1980 to 1997.

The results fron1 this study imply distance has a negative impact upon Australian exports, however this is falling in importance over time. This i11dicates the costs associated with distance are falling, as predicted due to falling transport and transaction costs. Trade policy implications that arise from this result is a relative diversification of Australia's exports to nations such as the United States, rather than an intensification of export flows to East Asia.
