“This precinct recognises the long-standing contribution of Greek Australians in the Inner West. Naming a section of Marrickville as ‘Little Greece’ is a gesture of respect to all the Greek migrants who helped establish the Inner West as the birthplace of Australian multiculturalism,” the Council writes about the renaming.

“This precinct will formalise the ongoing special bond that exists between Marrickville and the Greek-Australian diaspora.”

If you’d like to attend the naming ceremony, please RSVP by Monday, June 21, 2021 via EventBrite. For all enquiries, please call 9392 5177 or email at events@innerwest.nsw.gov.au.
