Wellington Chinese History Wiki
The New Zealand Chinese community has a long history in Wellington, New Zealand, with the earliest Chinese settling in Wellington around the 1870s, some 30 years after Wong Ah Poo Hoc Ting (aka Appo Hocton) jumped ship in Nelson to become the first Chinese migrant to New Zealand, and only a few years after the Dunedin Chamber of Commerce invited Chinese miners to Otago.
Although this wiki focuses on the greater Wellington area, there will be some content from further afield, which has a connection with the history of Chinese in Wellington.
