The Darwin GleNTi is set to kick off this weekend at Bicentennial Park, Darwin Esplanade, and to mark the occasion, the Northern Territory Government held an official launch event on Wednesday night.

Held at the NT Parliament House, there were over 150 people in attendance including NT Chief Minister, Michael Gunner, the President of the Greek Orthodox Community of Northern Australia, Nicholas Poniris, the Honorary Consul General of Greece in Darwin, John Anictomatis, and many other prominent members of the local Greek community.

Mr Poniris, who was emcee on the night, gave a small speech on the significance of Darwin’s Greek community and the bicentenary of the Greek Revolution this year. This was followed by short yet informative speeches from both Mr Gunner and Mr Anictomatis.

After attendees had enjoyed some canapes and free drinks, they moved on to the Darwin Entertainment Centre for a special concert by Dimitris Basis.
