Melbourne and Chinese immigration 

Melbourne is home to a mixed population. A large Chinese community has settled in the city. They began immigrating in the 1850s. The discovery of gold brought about Chinese immigration on a large scale to Victoria. Ships sailed from Hong Kong to Australia. Their cargo of men were all attracted by the "New Gold Mountain". It is back in those days that the Chinese community in Chinatown (Little Bourke Street) began to grow. 


Melbourne's history of Chinese immigration is one of the reasons why Asian cuisine is big in this city. This tour will allow you to try out some of the finest dumplings you can find in the city. And you will learn much more about Melbourne's history thanks to an expert guide who will share his knowledge with you. 


Melbourne Chinatown 
Chinatown is a distinctive and well-known area in Melbourne. Its establishment dates back to the gold rush days in the 1850s. It is the longest continuous Chinese settlement in the western world and one of the oldest Chinatowns in the Southern Hemisphere. Melbourne Chinatown's essential character and main focus is along Little Bourke Street. You will find several small alleys left and right that link the area to Bourke Street and Lonsdale Street.
