This year celebrates the centenary of the federation of the six original British colonies in Australia into the Commonwealth of Australia. National and regional celebrations dot the landscape, focusing on both the past and the future, amidst a population of 18 million who are largely unmoved by the achievement. Yet, this milestone provides an opportunity to raise public awareness of the nature of our constitutional system, its successes and failures, and its future.
