Commencing at the Chinese Museum, this two-hour walking tour takes visitors through Melbourne's Chinatown, the oldest in the world outside Asia. After touring the museum, where visitors can walk through a simulated 1860s goldmine and view Dai Loong, the world's longest imperial dragon, it heads outside into the lane ways, stopping at a traditional Chinese herbalist on the way. Guides explain (in English or Chinese) the history of Chinese immigration to Australia, the prejudice that the Chinese encountered, and the lively community they founded in Little Bourke Street which survives to this day.
