Transcript of ALDRICS PREZI
Australia in the late 1800's was very disorganized. Australia was a continent with 6 different colonies so travelling between each state was like immigration. Many people got annoyed about changing trains all the time because the tracks were different sizes and people got searched at the border of the states. If you didn't show the immigration master your immigration paper you won't be able to board the train. In Australia at the time people didn't get to vote for their leaders and laws. When they decided on federating they argued on which state should be the capital. Another issue was the bigger richer states (Melbourne, Sydney etc.) didn’t want to share money with smaller states and the smaller states (Tasmania) were afraid that they wouldn't get enough of a say they fought so much that New Zealand backed out of the idea of joining Australia and Western Australia didn't want to join either. In the end Aboriginal and Torres strait islanders weren't included in the new constitution and the Government made it harder for people that weren't European to immigrate to Australia.
