Why did australia become a nation

Why did Australia become a nation?

  • Australia became a nation because of peoples complaint's of railway lines, the states armies and things like exchange rates and trading taxes. In one meeting Sir Hennery Parks mentioned that our armies are like toy soldiers , but if we bound together we could be one of the best armies in the lands people were still not convinced. Hennery Lawson the poet was traveling by train and had a complaint of the hassle it was to get to where he was needed. People were embarrass by things like this and finally gave in to the idea of federation.

In 1821 Mary Lee was born in Ireland. She moved to South Australia in 1879, and was deeply involved with gaining the power to vote. Lee organised many petitions requesting that women should be allowed to vote. Her final petition had the signature of 11600 and was given to the parliament of South Australia in 1894. That gave women the right to vote and run for parliament.
