The Australian Capital Territory
, the home of the Australian capital of Canberra
, has passed a bill allowing same-sex civil unions
. As marriage is a federal matter in Australia, this is the highest recognition of same sex unions that is constitutionally allowed in a state or territory of Australia. However, it does give political momentum to the movement looking towards the repeal of the "one man and one woman" Marriage Amendment Act of 2004.
