    The early Chinese communities in Australia were often thought of a 'bachelor societies' because the Chinese population was mostly male. But families were a part of the story too.

    Men and boys came to New South Wales as fathers, sons, brothers, uncles and nephews. Many Chinese men formed intimate relationships and had children with Aboriginal women, white women and mixed Chinese-European women. Chinese women and girls also migrated to join their husbands and fathers.
