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


Via Asia Education Foundation, Kerry Halliburton Cook
Kylie Dufty's insight:

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.
