during the australian gold rush how did the shinese come to australia?
as other people have written .. the Chinese came by boat.
If ever you get the chance to go to Sovereign Hill you may hear the story how many of the Chinese landed in South Australia and then Trekked across to Victoria. Many of them cultivated gardens that could be harvested by those who followed them.
