Paniyiri (2)

It started in 1976 when a group of Australian Greeks wanted to share their culture with the community ….. and the rest is history!

Paniyiri – Australia’s longest running Greek Festival, famous for its’ food and Hellenic dancing, celebrated its’ 40 year milestone last weekend, and about 60,000 people, including myself, went along to experience everything Greek.

Octopus, anyone???


The park turned into a marketplace with more than 30 food stalls, and stages were set up to entertain the crowds with dancing, live music, grape stomping, plate smashing and olive and honeypuff eating contests.
