From Robe to Chinese Fortunes Exhibition

An exhibition exploring the individual stories of early Chinese Australians. 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. Thousands of Chinese men, and a handful of Chinese women, journeyed here hoping to make their fortunes. They came from a variety of cultural and economic backgrounds, and brought with them a wide range of skills and traditions. Chinese Fortunes is an exhibition from the Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka. In the face of stringent immigration restrictions and taxes imposed by the colonies pre-federation, many Chinese came to Australia and made their fortune. Chinese Fortunes explores the motivation, spirit, hardships, and legacies of the Chinese miners through a historical timeline of key events, storytelling, artefacts and objects. The exhibition will shine a light on the little known aspects of the Chinese diaspora during the high colonial period, providing the audience with a fresh view of the Chinese as pioneers and trailblazers of the Australian gold fields.
