Centenary of FederationPrint Page
The Federation Star is a 15metre tall stainless steel obelisk surmounted by a multi-faceted Federation Star. It was erected in Mill Park in 2001 to celebrate the centenary 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. When the Constitution of Australia came into force, on 1 January 1901, the colonies collectively became states of the Commonwealth of Australia.
