    Public

    Until well into the 20th century, men made up the majority of the Chinese Australian population. While many Chinese men came to Australia as temporary labour migrants, motivated by labour schemes and the goldrushes, others remained long term and established firm roots in New South Wales.

    Individual Chinese men made names for themselves in their local communities in Sydney and around the colony. Many of the best known and respected Chinese residents were storekeepers and businessmen.
