    Chinese communities existed around the colony of New South Wales, in the bush and the city. Many Chinese lived and worked in particular streets and neighbourhoods, earning these areas the name 'Chinese Quarter' or 'Chinatown'. These neighbourhoods provided a common meeting place for Chinese people, including those who lived further afield, with Chinese-run businesses and political, religious and social organisations.
