In commemoration of 160 years since thousands of Chinese miners arrived to Robe in South Australia and walked to the goldfields throughout Victoria, 20 Pioneer Walkers will re-enact the 552km journey these incredible men and women took. 

自壹百六十年前開始,數以千計的華人淘金工在南澳的羅布港上岸,徒步走到維多利亞州的各個礦區。為了紀念祖先的艱辛刻苦,二十位先鋒步行者踏上旅途,壹步壹步重現當年先人如何走出這條五百五十二公裏長路。

History of the Walk From Robe:

After The Red Ribbon Rebellion and Eureka Stockade uprising in Ballarat (both relating to miners objecting the expense of a miner’s license), in an attempt to prevent any further unrest, the Victorian government sought to restrict the number of Chinese entering the colony and introduced the Chinese Immigration Act. This limited the entry of Chinese to one person per tonne of ship cargo and imposed a ten pound per head tax on every Chinese person entering a Victorian port. Ship owners caught on quickly and started advertising passage to free ports like South Australia which resulted in the gold seekers having to walk to the goldfields throughout Victoria. The terrible journey which lost many to exhaustion and sickness became known as the "walk from robe".

羅布之路的歷史

在巴拉瑞特發生紅絲帶叛亂和尤利卡起事之後(兩起事件都和礦工反對礦工許可證有關),為了防止進壹步的動蕩,維多利亞政府試圖限制進入當時殖民地的中國人數,並提出了中國移民法案。此法案限制到達維多利亞州港口的船,每運抵壹噸貨物只能搭載壹名中國人,並且加收每位十鎊的人頭稅。船主們很快的利用此機會宣傳到達其他免收費港口的途徑,例如到南澳,讓許許多多的淘金工人,因而走上徒步至礦區的旅程。這條有如不測之淵的路途,導致許多人因病或疲勞致死,後來被稱為“羅布之路”。
