The Commonwealth of Australia
  • S. H. Steinberg
Part of the The Statesman’s Yearbook book series (SYBK)

Abstract

On 1 January, 1901, the colonies of New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and Tasmania were federated under the name of the ‘Commonwealth of Australia,’ the designation of ’colonies’—except in the case of Northern Territory, to which the designation ’territory’ is applied—being at the same time changed into that of ’states.’ Territories under the administration of the Commonwealth but not included in it comprise Papua (1 September, 1906), Norfolk Island, the mandated territory of New Guinea, Nauru, the territory of Ashmore and Cartier Islands, and the Australian Antarctic Territory (24 August, 1936), comprising all the islands and territory other than Adélie Land, situated south of 60° S. lat. and between 160° E. long. and 45° E. long.
