‘For the purpose of tariff fixing, the colony of New South Wales made up all of the modern “Australia” until 1825. After the first British settlement in Botany Bay in 1788, the second settlement was in Van Diemen’s Land when a penal colony was set up in 1803 and free settlement began soon after. However, the island was administered as a part of New South Wales until it became a separate colony in 1825. Thereafter tariffs in Van Diemen’s Land, like those in New South Wales, were governed by the British Parliament Act of 1822.’ (The First 100 Years of Tariffs in Australia: the Colonies, by P. J. Lloyd, University of Melbourne, p. 6)
