Enhanced by immigration case studies, 19th Century explores migration to Australia during that time period. 19th Century charts the steady increase in numbers of free settlers migrating from Britain, resulting in six separate Australian colonies by the end of the 1860s. With the discovery of gold came migrants from many different countries. Australia began to develop its own culture, and the book focuses on the movement towards independence from Britain, which led to Federation in 1901.
