About

To many Australians the early Chinese came, found their fortune in the gold rush and returned home with full pockets. However, this was not the case for the majority of the early Chinese immigrants. When gold was found in the Swan River Colony, regulations limited Asians from gaining mining permits.

Learn more about the life of the early Chinese in Western Australia and take a walk through Northbridge with Kaylene Poon. Kaylene is third generation Australian-born Chinese whose parents took over the only Chinese grocery shop in James Street in 1954. Kaylene is the Local History Officer for the City of Melville.
