During the gold rushes large numbers of Chinese made their way to Australia. Some would remain, which would influence immigration policies for more than 100 years. These policies became known as the ‘White Australia Policy’.
The National Archives collection includes a wealth of documents through which we can explore the lives of the Chinese Australians so heavily affected by this policy. The records reveal the politics of restriction but also a diverse range of information and photographs on the Chinese who managed against the odds to make Queensland their home.
