  1. How was England more developed than Australia at the end of the 18th century? Name two differences. You may use information from the text below to help you. Your answer should be between 35 and 45 words.

At the end of the 18th century Britain was a small, but powerful island which was experiencing an industrial revolution and rapid population growth. Therefore, it needed to increase its contact with non-European countries by founding an empire, for several reasons. Firstly, Britain needed to find cheap sources of material such as cotton, wood and metal so that it could make products in its factories.  For examples, Britain brought cheap supplies of cotton from India and made clothes with it. Secondly, Britain needed a market to sell its finished products such as clothes, guns and ships. Thirdly, it needed more space because British cities were becoming overcrowded and there was no where to put unwanted people such as criminals. Therefore, in 1787 Britain sent ships full of criminals to Australia which they used as an open air prison.

In 1787 Australia was a new colony with few Europeans in it.  Australia was undeveloped as it was inhabited by the Koori people who did not farm and did not live in villages. Australia was slow to develop for several reasons. Firstly, the Europeans who went to Australia at the end of the 18th century were uneducated and could not read or write. Secondly, the population of the new colony was very small and thirdly, Australia was far away from Europe and far away from international trade routes.
