From the first recorded Chinese free settler who arrived in New South Wales in 1818, the Chinese in Australia have become a major part of modern multicultural Australia.
Two hundred years on from the first settler, there are now more than 1.2 million Chinese Australians - Australia-born, China-born, and from every corner of the globe where Chinese people have settled. Theirs is a remarkable story in the history, settlement and cultural fabric of Australia. It now has a permanent home in Sydney.
“We are very excited to have a space for our community to share our history which is not widely known. Chinese people in Australia have been construed in many different ways in the Australian narrative, and a lot has been said about us. This space gives us an opportunity to tell our own story, in our own way.” — Dr John Yu AC, Australian of the Year (1996) & MOCA President
