The Union Flag was used as a flag of Australia until 1953, although the Australian blue ensign saw use as a governmental flag of Australia, and an informal national flag of the country since the early 20th century.

In 1953, the Australian blue ensign was named the national flag of Australia, through the Flags Act 1953. Although the Australian blue ensign replaced the Union Jack as the flag of Australia, Australian prime minister Robert Menzies told Australians that the Union Flag would be flown together with the Australian national flag "on notable occasions". Section 8 of that Flag Act also specified that the formalisation of the Australian blue ensign as the national flag did "not affect the right or privilege of a person to fly the Union Jack".

The Royal Hymn Of Australia, God Save The Queen. Sung and Played by the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra.

Often played during ANZAC, Remembrance and Royal occasions. This intrinsic and traditional element of the Australian experience was once Australia's National Anthem from 1788 to 1984 for almost 200 years.

This is the very same anthem that our ANZACs, and the majority of our war veterans sung to with such patriotic fervor and passion.

At the proclamation of our current national anthem in 1984, the Governor-General Sir Ninian Stephen declared that the former anthem was to be named the Royal Anthem of Australia and to be played on appropriate occasions such as ANZAC dawn services, Remembrance Day ceremonies and Royal Occasions and Celebrations.

The Royal Anthem has been sung as part of the ANZAC Dawn Service program since its inception. And the Royal Anthem today, symbolises our traditions, our culture, and the Australian experience.

Flinders Street Station decorated for the first visit of Queen Elizabeth II, Melbourne, 1954
On the Thailand Railway (1946) by Harold Abbott
Statue of William Charles Wentworth (August 1790 – 20 March 1872). Early activist for Australian self-rule. Founded the Australian Patriotic Association, the first political party in Australia.
Australia past is fucked up. Saw a film about some orphans that were shipped to Australia to colonise the place. It had two brothers in it. The guy in charge was some small boy much older then the rest he was asian. Theres a scene where the boys are fucking pigs. The asian boy finds out and charges in to stop them he beats them all up. It's some depressing film.
When usa first was being colonised it was hard then later it was great everyone got land food was plenty but Australia was hard to live in
Your problem is mistaking a film for reality.
Thats not true, both were equally hard or easy depending on the specific situation. The two largest differences between the colonisation of the US vs Australia are, one, Australia was a penal colony and two, Australia was far more isolated.
America was a penal colony.
australia only 10 percent of the land is farmable. America was a lot easier near the late 1700's they just had indians. The weather was okay you could farm and had bison and trappings

what did australia have deserts
Far more than 10 percent is farmable. Australia is not mostly desert. The weather and the land in America is far more inhospitable because of the extreme winters and the fact that the land had to be cleared, it was thick woodland upon arrival.
Peter Miller Cunningham (1789–1864) was a Scottish naval surgeon and pioneer in Australia. In 1817 he arrived in Australia and would write an account of his observation in the book "Two Years in New South Wales" in 1827.

> In the American states, and the Canadas, you have to proceed seldom less than a a thousand miles inland before you can obtain unlocated ground, which even then , in the States, you are obliged to purchase, while your produce has all to be trans ported by land and interior water carriage from one to two thousand miles, before it reaches the point of exportation.

> In New South Wales, on the contrary, you may have abundance of land within from fifty to a hundred and fifty miles of the coast, upon terms neither irksome nor burdensome. In America, the soil is almost uniformly covered with such dense forests, that a cart cannot pass readily through them without cutting down trees here and there on the route ; while the grass is either completely choked by the fallen leaves or so smothered by the overshadowing summer foliage, that its scantiness and sickly vegetation quite unfit it for pasture, except in the interior prairies and a few spots on the banks of rivers, where the soil is too wet for the growth of timber. Upon our very sea coast, or as soon as you have traversed at farthest from twenty to forty miles, the country is generally so thinly timbered that you may drive a carriage over it in all directions ; while the trees also, being but slightly clothed , and all evergreens— consequently never shedding their leaves - afford both a cool retreat for the cattle in the summer heats and a tolerable protection for the sward of native grass which every where abounds. Hence all kinds of stock may be kept here at the very outset-a thing quite impracticable in America.

> Again ;-In America, the severe winter totally precludes the field - pasturing of cattle, which must during that season be supported on hay, or the tender buds and sprouts of the forest trees, lopped off for them to browse upon. Here the winters are so mild , that native grass always sufficient abounds whereupon to winter all the stock you are for many years likely to possess.
>America was a lot easier near the late 1700's they just had indians.

Oh is THAT all? The so-called "first murricans" weren't the indigenous eco-hippes you learned about in woke-history class. Diaries kept by the early settlers records a far less savory picture. Of course, those are all distortions and lies while every diary kept by a Jew during the Holocaust is unquestionable truth.

At home or far away

Down at Kardinia Park

So! Stand up and fight, remember our tradition
Stand up and fight, it’s always our ambition
Throughout the game to fight with all our might
Because we’re the mighty blue and white
And when the ball is bounced, to the final bell
Stand up and fight like hell!
