Why did Australia switch to black cover passports?

And do you like it over the blue cover one?
It seems as though it and NZ are following suit in the UK's switch to burgundy a few years back...

How new is this?

I only renewed my passport in August 2010, and I still scored the old blue passport.

An 'All Black' passport really sounds like something the Kiwi's would choose.

ABC article

May 2009

Quote:
A new style of Australian passport has been released, incorporating iconic images with the latest security technology.

Launched today, the new travel document uses images by Australian artists of the country's unique landscape, flora and fauna, and lifestyle.

The uniquely Australian design work will make it very difficult to falsify.

Each page of the new passport is derived from Australian works of art such as the late Aboriginal artist Uta Uta Tjangala's iconic 1981 work Yumari, which is now held by the National Museum.
