A time capsule was placed to commemorate 100 years of the Federation of Australian colonies.

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.
