Abstract

Since the late 1880s, Greeks have been involved in Australian pearling - initially in the pearl industry and then in pearl cultivation. This paper points out the significance of the Greek contribution to Australian pearling as far outweighing the actual numbers involved. Key Greek individuals, families and regional groups that are featured include: Mary Dakas (nee Paspalis); Michael Paspalis; Nicholas Paspalis; Nicholas Basnalev; Denis George; Michael G. Kallis; George, Jack, and Nicholas Haritos.
