Chinese Australia


The Chinese Heritage of Australian Federation Project celebrates the contribution of Australia's Chinese communities to the early founding and subsequent development of Australia. It focuses on the private, community and public life of Australia's Chinese communities before and after Federation in 1901. Project outcomes include the recovery and presentation of historical materials and indexes concerning Chinese Australians, translation of Chinese-language historical documents, a world-wide web site, a travelling exhibition, and publications.
