Invitation- Celebratory Launch of Chinese Australians 200 years邀请函:《澳洲华人200年百万则故事展》庆祝晚宴

This is a very important year-long celebration that you can be part of!


2017 and 2018 is a very important time to recognise and uplift the Chinese Community through a year-long celebration created by the Chinese Museum acknowledging two major milestones in our history:

In 1818, Mak Sai Ying arrived in Sydney, as the first known Chinese-born settler.
In our 200th year anniversary, the Chinese Australian population has reached over one million.

We sincerely invite you to join us at the Park Hyatt Melbourne on Tuesday October 17 2017 for a special celebratory funtion – CHINESE AUSTRALIANS 200 YEARS CELEBRATORY LAUNCH.


The Celebratory Launch will be a significant event attended by Chinese, Australian and Victorian government representatives, representatives of high standing in the Chinese community, high achievers in our community as guests, high net worth Chinese business people, and Chinese and Australian corporations that support Chinese Australian commerce, amounting to 250 - 300 guests.

Tickets to the Event can be purchased at $188.00 each. If you are interested in attending, please download this booking form and post to  Pody Tung, Chinese Museum, 22 Cohen Place, Melbourne Vic. 3000 or by email to fundraising@chinesemuseum.co.au by 10 October 2017. You can also ring through payment. 

All funds raised at the dinner will be used to develop our new exhibition entitled ONE MILLION STORIES-CHINESE AUSTRALIANS 200 YEARS.


One Million Stories is an exhibition t hat will encapsulates 200 years of Chinese in Australia. It will show the trials and tribulations of early Chinese settlers, how they helped form the foundation of contemporary Australian Society, and their contributions in all fields of multicultural life in Australia today.

The fourth floor of the Chinese Museum in Melbourne will be transformed to hold this significant national exhibition. Capturing stories from each state of Australia, the exhibition plans to be shown through a schools’ program throughout Australia as part of the Museum’s extensive education program, reaching tens of thousands of school children per year.

The Exhibition’s vision is to proudly represent this very diverse Community across Australia, and show how the Community has been a long-term contributor that has led to Australia being a successful culturally diverse nation in the modern world.
