This FACT indicates the number of people who speak Greek at home. In the middle of the 20th century, thousands of Greeks immigrated into Australia as part of the Australian Government “Populate or Perish” incentive. Most Greek immigrants settled in Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney as they seemed like the best places to find work. During this time, the Greeks influenced a large cultural change in Australian cities with the growth of Greek cuisine and community clubs in each city. This data was collected for the 2016 ABS Census. The city with highest number is Melbourne at 107,386. The city with the lowest number is Hobart at 1,020.
