Our 4th podcast, VOICES FROM MELBOURNE’S CHINATOWN, is available for download from Spotify.


In this episode of our History Victoria Podcast, Past Lives, Sean Reynolds interviews Mark Wang, CEO of Melbourne’s Chinese Museum to explore the evolving identity and culture of the vibrant Chinese-Australian community. 
Mark delves into his family’s deep roots in Victoria, tracing back to his great-great-grandfather who arrived before the gold rush. Mark recounts his father’s modest start and rise to owning a successful import business in Melbourne. It’s a narrative that mirrors the broader story of the Chinese community and reflects the dynamic shifts in Australia’s population. Covering topics from culinary traditions to the vast array of personal tales captured in the Museum’s One Million Stories project, and even the quintessential Victorian debate – choosing a footy team – this podcast is Victoria’s history, but not as you know it.
