9 July marks the anniversary of the creation of Commonwealth of Australia. In 1900, Queen Victoria gave her royal consent to an Act that brought the previously separate colonies on the continent under one federal government.

Many more pictures relating to Australia can be found at the Look and Learn picture library, ranging from the history of Australia’s discovery by Captain Cook, the Australian gold rush, Australian wildlife and native aborigines.
