Help us Restore the Lawrence Chinese Camp
Prohibited from living in the Lawrence township the Chinese miners arriving during the Otago gold rush in the 1860's set up camp outside of the township . Today the site is known as the' Lawrence Chinese Camp' and has historic importance.
A Trust was formed to protect and restore the camp.The Joss House , was recently returned to the site. The Chinese Empire Hotel and the Stables urgently require restoration and reinstatement of the bar.
A Visitor Centre and carpark need to be built to cater for visitors , local and international.
By donating you are helping with the preservation of the early Chinese culture and history .
It is the Trust's aim to make the camp a ' must see' destination in Lawrence , Clutha New Zealand.
