Jubilee Commemoration Gates Print Page
Memorial Gates form the entrance to the Tamborine Mountain Bowls Club and Memorial Centre and commemorate the 50th anniversary of Federation.
The Federation of Australia was the process by which the six separate British self-governing colonies of Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia, and Western Australia formed one nation. They kept the systems of government that they had developed as separate colonies but also would have a federal government that was responsible for matters concerning the whole nation. When the Constitution of Australia came into force, on 1 January 1901, the colonies collectively became states of the Commonwealth of Australia.
