This BTN was about a Dutch explorer stumbled across Tasmania in 1642. In fact, we would probably be speaking Dutch if it wasn’t for Captain Cook, Who claimed Australia for the Great Britain in 1770. Then on the 1st of January 1901, all of the states/colonies of Australia joined together to become on country.
They could defend themselves as a country if war happened. We would be speaking dutch if Able Tasman stayed. You couldn’t go interstate staying on the same train.
Was Tasmania accepted as a part of Australia straight away? Did each colony have their own leader?
It’s strange on why would they let the indigenous vote before they were counted in the population.
