Chinatown Melbourne
• The discovery of gold in 1851, attracted Chinese immigration on a large scale to Victoria. Ships sailed to Australia from Hong Kong with the cargo of men, who had come in search of the ‘New Gold Mountain’. The purchase of land in Little Bourke Street by Chinese district associations, saw the establishment of what would become the modern day Melbourne’s ‘Chinatown’, the longest continuous Chinese settlement in the world. Today, Chinatown predominantly extends along Little Bourke Street, between Swanston Street and Spring Street. Visit this site to read the history.
