Looks like an attempt at a Fosters Clone. Not sure either what you are making, with nearly 17% white wheat.

Well its not really an attempt to clone anything. Its just what I think might taste good.

Anything you would change?

Looks like it's somewhere between a hoppy blonde ale and an ESB. If that's what you're going for, go ahead and brew it. It'll probably be pretty tasty.

If you have a different flavor profile in mind, let us know, and we'll suggest recipe modifications to get you closer.

I'd say it looks pretty tasty. I don't have any experience with Aussie Ale yeast though.

I'm thinking about just making it Cascade hops only instead. Thoughts?

Without knowing what you want this to taste like, there's no way to answer that question. If you can describe what you're after, we might be able to give advice.

I'd lean that way, but I love Cascade/Centennial hops for everything.
