Transcript of Imperialism in Australia

Imperialism in Australia Australia as a British Colony Australia became a part of the British Empire in 1788 when the First Fleet arrived at Botany Bay. Britain made Australia a penal colony, a place where they could send convicts. There were a total of 1000 passengers, and 800 were convicts. First, the British settled what is now Sydney, Australia. They began to settle land because of rich copper and gold deposits, along with coal and other metals. Relationship Between the People and Their "Ruler" The people living in Australia before the British took over were called the Aboriginals. At first, Aboriginals avoided the British settlers. The British Governor Phillip also wanted to avoid any unnecessary conflict between them by treating the Aboriginals with kindness and by ordering his men not to assail them. In 1901, Britain granted Australia freedom, but it remains part of the British Empire. The British thought that they were superior to the Aboriginals and they treated them like it, too. Their relationship was similar to the relationship between Native Americans and European settlers. The British drove Aboriginals from their homes, causing resentment between the two cultures. The Aboriginals felt that they deserved to live in Australia and that the British were taking away that right. Effects of Colonization Now That's Interesting! Au.In 1970, a report on the national policies of Australia found that there were no Aboriginal families who did not have at least one child taken away.
Before colonization, there were more than 300,000 Aborigines. Together, they spoke more than 500 different languages.
The Aboriginal people do not have a written language. The only way to tell their cultural story is through song and artwork.
After Antarctica, Australia is the driest continent.
About 115 of 100,00 citizen in Australia are in jail, compared to the United States at 700 citizens!
Australia's record temperatures are 123 degrees F and -9 degrees F!
All of Europe could fit inside Australia! Colonization in Australia In conclusion, the British took over Australia for many reasons. Mostly, they wanted to gain power. They treated the natives with disrespect and destroyed their lands. Even so, the culture and traditions of the Aboriginal people has not changed. Australia still remains part of the British Empire. Australia's natural resources were depleted due to Britain's gain. Also, many Aboriginal people were killed because of new diseases introduced to the area. This was the most dominant and fastest acting effect. The culture the Aborigines established was destroyed. The world was affected because Great Britain took Australians to fight in their wars all through the twentieth century. Reasons to Colonize Natural resources were a need in Britain because they lost the "income" from America.
They wanted to expand the British Empire.
They wanted to prevent the French from colonizing Australia.
Britain wanted to solve their problem of overcrowded prisons due to the Industrial Revolution.
