The Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act 1900 (UK) is the most important document for the modern democratic nation of Australia.
The Constitution is the legal document upon which the Commonwealth of Australia was founded at Federation.
The Constitution transferred specific powers from the six independent British colonies to the future Australian federal government.
The Constitution was written between 1890 and 1900.
Politicians, government officials, lawyers and the ordinary people of Australia all helped to create a uniquely democratic Constitution for Australia.
