The Islands of New Holland were first discovered by Abel Tasman in 1642 he named the islands after the province in the Netherlands. The Area was largely unexplored until James Cook returned in 1769 and mapped the entire coastline of New Holland. Settlement occurred in 1832 along with NZ. The colony progressed at a fast pace with over 10,000 settlers by 1840. New Holland became a Independent colony from New South Wales in 1851. The Representative Government was formed in 1852, in Victoria. Gold was discovered in the Southern Area in 1876. This caused a Gold rush with prospectors arriving from all over the world. This caused the City of Cambridge to swell with population and wealth as the miners moved to the region and other services. In 1907 after deciding not join the Australian Commonwealth the Colony gained Dominion status in the British Empire along with Australia, Canada and New Zealand. The New Holland army sent soldiers to WWI to fight with the British. Afterwards, the public seeing the heroism of their soldiers, there was a wave of national pride. Which gave impetus for the government to campaign for more sovereignty. This was ignored by the British Administration.
In the 1920's New Holland gained a more Liberal approach to foreign affairs and national security and decreasing its dependence from the UK. When World War Two arrived NH troops were sent to Europe to fight the Germans. The defense of the Nation was left to the Royal Navy and later after the presence was diminished the US. After the war when NZ, Australia and the US signed the ANZUS treaty, New Holland declined to join wanting to keep foreign influence out of the country. When Britain entered the European Economic Community, New Holland embarked on a liberal Free-Trade economy, in order to protect its economy and people.
