What is happening in Australia in 1914CE

Another Gold Rush in the 1890’s in Western Australia has boosted the population and wealth of the country. This is part and parcel of a great expansion of the Australian economy as, internally, a spreading railroad network knits the continent together, and steamships tie the Australian economy more closely to that of Britain. These developments lead to a huge growth in demand for Australia’s meat, wool and wheat.

Australia has been granted national independence from Britain, 1901, within the British Empire. The six colonies have become six states within the Commonwealth of Australia. Each state has its own parliament, and a federal parliament conducts national affairs. The new city of Canberra has been designated the nation’s capital (1911).
