The Cretan Association of the Northern Territory has been re-established after five years, according to a press release by the Cretan Federation of Australia & New Zealand.

The re-establishment comes after several passionate Cretans in Northern Australia requested assistance from the Federation to re-elect a new committee following the resignation of Honorary President Kostas Hnaris.
