    Slightly expensive for the small place, but very interesting item which give a good introduction to the (Southern) Chinese culture. The basement level is fun

    There is a great audio tour of Chinatown, with stories from people who lived here in the 30's & 40's.

    This is a great place to visit to see the Chinese contribution to the Australian way of life - you will need a couple of hours to get most out of it - very reasonably priced admission
