Melbourne gets the buzz for the biggest Greek community in Australia but Sydney has a vibrant scene too and one of its best events since 2015 has been the Greek Island Festival on Clark Island in the famed harbor.
It combines Greek food and wine as a lure to the alluring backdrop and in 2022 will be held for three days starting on Greek Independence Day on March 25, said the site Timeout, and will feature a Santorin spa for massage treatments.
There will also be a Mount Olympus stage featuring live Greek music and dancing, and a Mykonos seaside stage with some epic Australian DJs.
It’ll cost $99 plus booking fees but include ferry tickets and transfers, a welcome drink, a branded toe bank and reusable tumbler for beverages and all those grilled prawns, octopus, spanakopita, souvlaki, and gyros can be washed down with beer.
The feature will include Greek wines and sparkling drinks, from Attica, Arcadia, and Macedonia, beers from Chios Island and Atalanti, plus plenty of Greek-inspired cocktail creations, and even a Fever-Tree Greek Island Spritz bar.
Don’t forget to bring your Greek dancing shoes.
