A poll by Essential Research shows a substantial minority of Australians believe:

A majority do not believe that global warming is a hoax perpetrated by scientists (68%), that the vibrations from wind farms cause long-term damage to health (58%), nor that vaccines can cause autism (70%).

The Melbourne-based polling and communications firm included the questions in their weekly online panel-based survey which, on this occasion, included responses from 1075 Australians. Methodology for the poll can be found here.
