Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

No account of Northern Australia is complete without consideration of the people from many ethnic groups who have helped build Darwin and influence the Northern Territory. Darwin’s Greeks have undeniably played a significant role in the development of Northern Australia, since the pioneers of the Greek community have left their mark in many areas. They have worked ceaselessly to achieve their goals in a new country. In Darwin there has been a dynamic Hellenic presence since the beginning of the 20th century. Through their determination in spirit, their strength of character, and their willingness to take risks, Greeks have contributed to life in the Northern Territory. In Darwin, there are famous, Greek Territorians, who have helped in the development of the city. These people have demonstrated the persistence required to overcome adversity, and they have left us with a story that deserves to be remembered in this thriving community
