Sydney's early Greeks

    Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/WebsiteArticle

    Abstract

    The earliest Greek's to arrive in Sydney did so on convict ships. Later, gold attracted the first real wave of Greek migration, but it wasn't until the era of oyster saloons and soda bars that the city's Greek presence became conspicuous. This article provides a detailed investigation into the historical migration and settlement of Hellenes into the NSW capital from the 1810s through to the 1940s.
