‘Chinese Fortunes’

28 January @ 10.00 am - 25 June @ 5.00 pm

From 1852, news of the gold rushes in Victoria and New South Wales spread throughout the southern provinces of China, bringing the promise of great prosperity. Australia became known as New Gold Mountain or San Gam San. Thousands of Chinese men, and a handful of Chinese women, journeyed here hoping to make their fortunes. This exhibition explores the stories of these remarkable pioneers, and the hardships they overcame to make their Chinese Fortunes.
