The Answer: 1901

5 Sep

James Cook “discovered” Australia in 1788 (although Aboriginals had been living there for 60,000 years). In 1901 the colonies voted to unite and become Australia.

Bonus question: Who was the first prime minister?

Answer (since none of you know): Edmund Barton.

Sir Edmund Barton
