Antipodes Festival 2023
Get ready for Melbourne’s most highly anticipated Hellenic event!
The Greek Community of Melbourne is thrilled to bring back the Antipodes Festival, a celebration that pays tribute to Australia’s vibrant Greek community. This event showcases a delightful array of food, activities, and performances that highlight the richness of Greek culture.
Embracing History: Australia’s Greek Journey
Australia’s deep-rooted Greek history dates back to the 1850s gold rush, which brought the first generation of Greek migrants to Victoria. Fast forward to the present day, and Melbourne proudly stands as the world’s third-largest Greek city, with over 400,000 Greeks contributing to one of the largest groups within the global Greek diaspora.
