Product Description
An understanding of systems of government and the franchise in Australia is best gained through examining the development of democracy since the colonial period. In this resource we examine democracy in Australia, from Aboriginal custom and law to the huge changes that occurred after Australia was colonised.

The relationship between Britain and Australia is examined through the political structures, such as colonial Legislative Assemblies.
Significant events, such as the Eureka Stockade, and the Shearer’s Strike of 1891, are placed within context and the lead up to Federation is discussed.
Short sections reviewing Women’s Suffrage and Indigenous Suffrage are included.
