So You Want to Be Prime Minister
It doesn t matter if you're rich or poor, a snappy dresser or a messy eater. Australia's prime ministers have had very different backgrounds (Paul Keating managed a rock band and Chris Watson swept up horse manure). But did you know you have a better than average chance if your first name is John and you were born in Victoria?

Canberra: Federal Capital
In 1901 when the six British colonies of early Australia came together to form one country, a new capital city was proposed. Find out why Canberra was selected and how it became an important treasure trove of historical, artistic, sporting and scientific achievement.

Eureka Stockade
On 3 December 1854, well-armed British soldiers and police stormed a crude wooden stockade that had been built by defiant miners fighting for their rights. The battle lasted just twenty minutes but it changed Australia forever. Some say the Eureka Stockade marks the birth of democracy in Australia.
