Join Charles Sturt University PhD candidate, Juanita Kwok as she brings to life the Chinese quarters of Bathurst. Beginning the walk with the story of indentured labourer Newing’s execution in front of the Bathurst Gaol in 1852, Juanita will discuss the lives of Bathurst Chinese residents William Beacham, Ah Guy, Kum Mow, George Chew Ming and others as you walk along Howick, Rankin, Durham and George Streets. Learn about the Chinese Masonic Lodge that stood on the corner of Rankin and Durham Streets between 1921 and 1953. All proceeds to Médecins Sans Frontières.
