1 January 1901 was the date when Federation occurred in Australia. Federation meant the joining of all the colonies on the Australian continent to form the nation of the Commonwealth of Australia. No longer was the continent occupied by six disparate colonies administered by their own government, but by a central Federal government which allocated certain powers to the state governments.
