"Australia has benefited enormously from the contributions made by Chinese migrants, who began arriving in Australia in significant numbers from the 1840s. After the abandonment of the restrictive White Australia Policy in the 1970s, and in recent decades, Australia has experienced greater levels of migration from individuals with Chinese ethnic origins." 

The National Library of Australia recently launched an initiative to preserve reflections of Australians with Chinese heritage in line with their goal to build a diverse National collection representative of our rich multicultural society, through documenting Australian communities and nurturing long-term relationships.
