VI. The Greek community
The total population of Australians of Greek descent is estimated at around 700,000.
According to estimates, some 200,000 live and work in the greater Melbourne area, 125,000 in Sydney and New South Wales, 75,000 in Adelaide and 20,000 in Perth.
Whatever the precise numbers, the fact is that our fellow Greeks in Australia are now an integral part of Australian society, making an invaluable and universally acknowledged contribution to the countrys development. Individuals of Greek origin have distinguished themselves in the science and financial sectors, as well as in the countrys business life. There are also many Australians of Greek origin who have been elected to the parliament and senate at both federal and state levels, or who hold positions in local government.
There are numerous communities and local Greek associations in almost every city, as well as federations of associations on a Pan-Australian level. They help keep Greek culture alive and preserve links with Greece (for more information, check the website of the General Secretariat for Greeks Abroad - www.ggae.gr).
