Présentation de la FNASAT 1840 – 1900 | Australia's migration history timeline | NSW Migration Heritage Centre Circular Quay, Charles Percy Pickering, 1871. Courtesy State Library of New South Wales By 1869, there were six colonies in Australia – New South Wales, Tasmania, Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria and Queensland – all settled by British people. These separate colonies all had their own governors, parliaments and systems of government reporting to Britain. As the interior was explored and mapped, squatters and free settlers followed and Aboriginal people were pushed from their homelands. The discovery of gold sent a shock wave through Colonial Australia. Chinese in Lambing Flat riots, December, 1860. Chinamen at work on the gold fields.

ITALIE - Museo Regionale dell'Emigrazione Pietro Conti Hadopi-data Everyday life In 19th century Melbourne free land was scarce, housing was a problem, and when times got tough, people turned to alcohol. Those who watched the city grow tell the story of how the streets were named, when the first brewery appeared, and how a woman got by in a man's world. The witty observations of an Irish journalist tell the real story of life in Port Phillip. Hard times and economic woes made the lure of alcohol all too tempting for Melbourne's common folk. After some initial problems, Melbourne's city grid became an iconic feature of a rapidly growing town. Melbourne's population in the 1800s reflected the city's growth as a bustling metropolis. Melbourne's city street names link directly to the story of colonial life in Port Phillip. Almost since their arrival, settlers had felt strongly that Port Phillip deserved to be a separate colony. Female convicts and free settlers were a small but important part of Port Phillip's development.

Europeans, North Americans, South Americans, Indians, Chinese and Africans were among the thousands who answered the call of Australian gold. As an experiment in multiculturalism however, the gold fields were a failure. Fear and hatred of the Chinese miners led to violence and eventually, legislation to restrict their numbers. The immigration rush Hundreds and thousands of hopeful diggers rushed to Australia and transformed the population. Multicultural gold fields Diggers from all over the world created Australia’s first truly culturally diverse society on the gold fields. The New Gold Mountain Thousands of Chinese headed to Australia in search of fortune. Fear of the Chinese More than any other cultural group, the Chinese were singled out and despised on the gold fields. Stereotyping the Chinese Racist stereotypes fuelled the European diggers' sense of superiority.
