BTN – Australian Federation

Facts – RED

Questions – GREEN

Insight – BLUE

This BTN article was about how the Australian federation was made. Three facts I got from the video where the first person to discover Australia was a Dutch explore called Ayden Tasman in 1642 came across Tasmania but moved on. Australia wasn’t claimed until 1770 when Captain James cook claimed a big chunk of and for Britain.  By the 1860’s Britain had set up six colonies around Australia and Great Britain was the big boss. Each colony had their own defence, trade rules and their own railway lines. Two questions I have after watching the article where why did Britain set up six colonies? and did each colony have their own leader? One insight I got after watching the video was that Britain was the country that made Australia what it is today.
