    I mean by most everyone. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australian_English_phonology
    "As with New Zealand English the start vowel in words like park /pɐːk/, calm /kɐːm/ and farm /fɐːm/ is central (in the past even front)[2] in terms of tongue position and non-rhotic. This is the same vowel sound used by speakers of the Boston accent of North Eastern New England in the United States. Thus the phrase park the car is said identically by a New Zealander, Australian or Bostonian."

    This pronunciation is non-standard pretty much everywhere else.
