Chinese settlers first rushed to Victoria in large numbers hoping to strike gold. Most were men contracted to agents who sponsored their voyages, and they faced years of difficult repayments. They also sent money back to their families in China.

Introduction | Tracking The Dragon | NSW Migration Heritage Centre | Year 5 History: Chinese Migration and the Gold Rush | Scoop.it

In the mid to late nineteenth century a combination of powerful push and pull factors led to an unprecedented rise in Chinese migration to other parts of Asia, the Americas and Australia. The principal source of migrants was Guangdong (Kwangtung) Province in southern China, in the south west of the province and areas abutting the principal city, Guangzhou (Canton), and Hong Kong.

Asia Education Foundation - Chinese in Australia (Gold Rush) Resource

Kylie Dufty's curator insight, November 18, 2014 8:59 PM

This resource contains images and scans of original documents relating to Chinese people in Australia during the gold rush period. 

 

It also contains information about first contact between Australia and the Chinese, Chinese in Australia as workers and who the Chinese people were who came to Australia. 

 

Some of the information is dense but the images are valuable and students can scan for headings relevant to their research and skim the content for key words.
