The Development of Australian Government: Colonisation, Federation and Beyond

In this Australian-made, primary curriculum fit programme a lively young presenter takes us on a journey through the development of Australia as a nation. We start with British colonisation and discover the reasons for Federation, including the importance of key figures. We then trace the development of the new nation and discuss the importance of the Australian flag, anthem and coat of arms. Finally, we arrive at our present three-tiered system of government, studying Federal and State government and their areas of responsibility. Along the way we learn about the basic principles of democracy and equality of rights.
