Subject: Our neighbours
Verb: are
Subject complement: from Australia
Direct object: Australia


The subject is what the sentence is about, in this case, "Our neighbours", because it is mainly talking about it.

The verb is an action, and the only one in this sentence is "are". This is from the verb "to be".

The subject complement is "from Australia", because it identifies and describes the subject "Our neighbours".

The direct object is "Australia" because this is after the verb, excluding the preposition "from".
