A Nation at Last
By 1880, the six Australian colonies had grown into distinct and separate provinces proud of their own political institutions, defence organisations and commercial enterprises. Despite the rivalry, these six States came together in peace to form a new nation, a rare event by world standards. This exhibition tells the story of Federation and how in the words of Henry Lawson became "A Nation at Last". This exhibition on line is supported by extensive teachers notes for both primary and secondary students.
