Yes: Federation of the states in Australia was a good idea for several reasons.
Trade: There were steep tariffs imposed on the transport of goods across the borders of the states. Federation removed these tariffs and allowed for free trade between the states.
There were many reasons why Federation was good for Australia:
Sir Henry Parkes is considered to be the Father of Australian Federation.Parkes was first elected to the New South Wales Parliament in 1854, and was Premier of New South Wales several times between 1872 and 1891.Parkes is perhaps best remembered for his famous Tenterfield Oration, delivered on 24 October 1889, at the Tenterfield School of Arts. In this speech, he advocated the Federation of the six Australian colonies, based mainly on the advantages this would offer for trade - specifically, free trade across the borders.
Look into the first discovery of Australia and the relationship between England and the American Colonies and the discovery and colonization of Australia - also convict transportation to the US and then to Australia. Then look at Australian - American relations in the post Federation era (that's the 20th century basically).
The term "Father of Federation" refers to Sir Henry Parkes, an influential politician who pushed for Federation of Australia's states. To be the "father of federation" means he was the one who really pushed for the federation of Australia's colonies. Parkes is particularly remembered for his famous Tenterfield Oration, delivered at the small rural town of Tenterfield in October 1889. In this speech, he campaigned heavily for Federation of the six Australian colonies. Tenterfield was selected as the place to make his stand as it was part of New South Wales but a long distance away from Sydney. This meant that the town was disadvantaged by the steep tariffs imposed on the transportation of goods across the border to Queensland, where the closer trade centre of Brisbane was located. His promotion of Federation was based on the fact that it would enable free trade across the borders.
