On the first of january 1901 federation started that meant that for the first time there was one government.
Sir Henry Parkes and Edmund Barton are two men worked so hard to do federation that’s what I now know. :]
Federation is the uniting of two or more colonies, and in this case it was uniting Australia’s six states and territories.
In 1889, Henry Parkes, known as the father of federation, gave a speech encouraging Federation. It was known as the Tenterfield oration. In the 1890’s, Australia had several referendums, and in 1901, Australia became one country, no longer parented by England.
I know that the federation started in 1901 on the 1st of January. As well federation is when all the colonials came together as one country .
The first governor-general was Lord Hopetoun.
The first prime minster chosen for Australia was Edmond Barton. When the new nation was declared there was a completion for a new flag and 30 000 people entered and the first
Prize was 200 pounds and people had to share it.
In 1903 two flags were chosen. On the flag there was commonwealth star with 7 points which meant the 6states and terrorises
Federation started to be talked about around 1870 because some states of Australia wanted to become one nation. Henry Parkes leader of New South Wales
wanted Australia to become one nation because he thought if we federated we would be able to spread expenses across the country and we could share wealth. Some people wanted free trade whilst others wanted protectionism. Free trade means that we can import things from other countries with out an import tax but protectionism is the opposite meaning that we will have an import tax on imported things. The first person to be Australia’s first prime minister was Edmund Barton who when Henry Parkes died in 1896 pushed for Australia to federate. I think that Tasmania shouldn’t Separate from Australia because Henry Parkes put his heart and soul into Australia federating. Henry Parkes was nick named the ‘father of federation’.
Federation started when 7 colonies united to become one
nation. This happened in 1901 and know Sir Henry Parkes was
the father of federation. Australia’s mother country was england before we united.

Free Trade & Protectionism
Free trad is when you import from other countries and don’t charge import Tax. Protectionism is when you import things that the country that you are can grow them there self, so they make them pay import tax to the county . It is supporting the local industry and not buying food, drinks and other goods is helping local businesses.
What I know about federation
Federation began in 1901 after a referendum for a prime minister the man who was voted was Sir Edmund Barton. In 2001 after a century of federation Henry Parks was printed on the $5 note.
Free trade and protectionism was one of the main debates about federation. Protectionism supporters wanted import tax to be put into place, but free traders wanted everyday low prices. So that was where Coles got it from!
In 1901 australia became one nation .Before australia was one nation each states and teritorys had there own goverment .Free trade means that if you are in australia you can send stuff only around australia and you dont have to pay import tax.If we did not have the queen we would have to change lots of things such as coinsand it would cost lots of money to change lots of things.So that why we charge import tax so we make money just incase something happens like that.
I now know that federation means the uniting of the colonies to become one country.The first prime minster of australia was Emund Barton. A constitution means a list of rules about how the government works.Herny Parks had believed that australia should unite to become one nation.

when we started federation work i said i knew nothing but after weeks of hard work on federation this is what i now know
Free trade is where other countries are aloud to import stuff into other countries with out paying import tax. Protectnism is where countries make you pay import tax. Federation began in 1901. Also in 1901 that was when the six colonies united to make one nation called Australia. The leader of New south wales gave a speech in the country town of tenterfield convincing the colonies to make one nation(country).
Federation started on the 1st of January 1901. Unfortunately Sir Henry Parks[the head of New South Wales] was not alive to see federation. Now we are federated we don’t have to pay import taxes and we have free trade. Our flag has the Union Jack of England on it because before we federated England was Australia’s parent country, it also has a star with seven points which represent the six states and territory which is called the commonwealth star and the flag also has five other stars.
