              Not all of Australia's capital cities depended on convicts for their early development. The settlers who went to Adelaide wanted their new town kept free of convicts and resisted accepting them even though this meant there were often shortages of workers to build roads work on fa...rms and construct buildings. Adelaide developed into a city that valued freedom. It had its own local government only a few years after founding and its women were the first in Australia to gain the vote. Each of Australia's eight capital cities has a unique history. Some like Sydney depended on convicts for their early survival. Others such as Adelaide refused to accept convicts and developed differently as a result. Having a reliable source of fresh water was a common requirement which is why all of the cities are located beside a water supply of some sort. Many cities struggled through their early years until the 19th century Gold Rush provided them with the funds to build magnificent civic buildings as well as roads bridges and railways. Today each of the capitals has its own character and attractions and their development plans will determine the shape of Australia's future.

              Perth is the capital city of the largest Australian state. Isolated on the west coast of the continent for many years Perth was separated by enormous deserts from all the other colonies until a road was built across the Nullarbor Plain. From the time the British settled there in ...1829 Perth's early growth was slow. The settlers resisted accepting convicts for many years but eventually had to give in. There were not enough people to fill jobs and build public works so convicts were made to take on these roles from the 1850s. Perth became the last Australian colony to take convicts from Britain with the last ones arriving in 1868. Perth is now one of Australia's major tourist attractions and welcomes visitors from around the world many of whom come to experience its beautiful Indian Ocean beaches. Each of Australia's eight capital cities has a unique history. Some like Sydney depended on convicts for their early survival. Others such as Adelaide refused to accept convicts and developed differently as a result.

              Despite its shaky start the British settlement at Port Phillip developed into a colonial city that rivalled Sydney for its wealth and cultural influence.

In the 20th century Melbourne became the first city in the southern hemisphere to host an Olympic Games and today it has a focus on the arts and a commitment to sustainability. Melbourne has a large and diverse population and it expects to rival Sydney in numbers of people in the near future. Each of Australia's eight capital cities has a unique history.
