Buy our souvenir booklet Wing Hing Long & Co: Chinese-Australian Rural General Store 1881-1998 by Stephen Thompson at the Store.

In 1881, the site where Wing Hing Long & Co is situated was purchased by Inverell storekeeper Ah Lin to establish a general store to cater to the Chinese miners. The main part of the store was built sometime in the 1880s. From this time until 1998 the Wing Hing Long store was owned by Chinese migrants or their descendants.

The booklet was published by the NSW Migration Heritage Centre in partnership with the Guyra Shire Council.
