T ask 2 Federation


What It Is:

Federation is the joining of states to become one nation.

What happened:

In 1860 there were six British colonies in Australia. The main laws of the colonies were made by the British Parliament.

At first the 6 colonies didn’t have much to do with each other but people began to think of the idea of being Australian and celebrated in songs and poems.

During the 1890s federation started to become a popular idea. A nation would be stronger than individual colonies.

Western Australia weren’t agreeing to become a nation with the other 5 colonies but at one stage there was a gold rush that made people from the other colonies go to Western Australia which changed many people’s thoughts about becoming a nation and they decided to join the Commonwealth.

The colonies became States, and a Federal Parliament was formed according to the Constitution.
