    Public

    Chinese migrants to New South Wales brought with them religious and cultural practices common to southern China. They built temples (commonly known in English as 'joss houses') and celebrated festivals such as Chinese New Year and Qingming.

    The Christian churches established 'Chinese missions' and employed Chinese clergy to minister to the Chinese population.
