Jan 26th 1901 was when Australia first got self rule over itself from the British, 72yrs after they settled here and made Terror Australis part of the British Empire.
its our version of "July 4th", all we need to do now is cut ties with the Monarchy and the Commonwealth, and replace the Union Jack on our flag....the winds of change are-a blowing and the Republic of Australia gets closer every year.
sorry Tiggi and everyone else from the UK....but we dont need you guys, we have more in common with the US than you.
ps. i was born in England and spent a good deal of my childhood there but it aint home.
