Best Answer

Britain was the main colonizer of Australia, starting with the penal colonies it established on the coast. British colonizers wiped out much of the Aboriginal culture and killed many of the Aboriginals, replacing their culture with British culture. As a result, the Aboriginal cultures are less prominent than they had been historically, and most Australians use a version of British language, law, and ideals.

What negative impact did Australia have on the british empire?

I think you mean what negative impacts the British Empire had on Australia? But anyway I'll answer YOUR question. And that is, Australia didn't have any negative impact on the British Empire. It served as a perfect prison colony as a cheap way for the Empire to dump its prisoners. It produced vast amounts of wool for the Empire which is where the Australian saying comes from 'To break the sheeps back'. It experienced one of the largest gold rushes in history therefore bringing more wealth to the British. It never rebeled against the Empire so there was no expenditure on military. Australia also had a large part to play in colonial wars in that part of the world notably the NZ wars, the Sudanese war, and the Boer war. Although Australia became independent in 1901, today it is still part of the commonwealth and is now called the crown jewell.
