The Boxer Uprising broker out in rural China and quickly gained tacit support from some of the Chinese Government who saw the anti-foreign movement as a useful tool to pressure foreign powers. This resulted in a fifty-five day siege of the Peking Legations from June to August 1900.

Nine Countries sent military forces to China. These defeated the Chinese and Boxer armies and captured Peking. imposing a heavy indemnity on China. The Australian Naval Contingents from New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia, were the first Australian so serve in Asia. There were also Australians in the British forces, and working as missionaries and journalists in China during the Boxer Uprising - the best-known being George Morrison who was in the Legation Quarter throughout the Siege.
