WIKIPEDIA articles The history of Australia from 1901-1945 begins
with the federation of the colonies to create the Commonwealth of
Australia. The beginning of the twentieth century saw the final
result of nearly two decades of negotiations with regard to
federation, with the approval of a federal constitution by all six
Australian colonies and its subsequent ratification by the British
parliament in 1900. This resulted in the creation of one federal
Australian state as of 1 January 1901. Federation was a symbol of
unity and gave people the chance to be 'Australian'. Melbourne was
chosen as the temporary seat of government while a purpose-designed
capital city, Canberra, was constructed. The future King George V,
then the Duke of York, opened the first Parliament of Australia on
9 May 1901, and his successor, (later to be King George VI) opened
the first session in Canberra during May 1927. Australia became
officially autonomous in both internal and external affairs with
the passage of the Statute of Westminster Adoption Act on 9 October
