What's On

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.

This exhibition explores the stories of the thousands of Chinese men and women who journeyed here hoping to make their fortunes and brought with them a wide range of skills and traditions.

Chinese Fortunes is a bilingual exhibition.
