Prime Minister Scott Morrison congratulates The Greek Herald on its 95th anniversary


Australian Prime Minister, Scott Morrison, has issued a message of congratulations to The Greek Herald as the newspaper celebrates its 95th anniversary this year.

In his message, Mr Morrison commends The Greek Herald for encouraging “a greater understanding between Australia and Greece” and “sharing the joys of Greek Australians” over the past 95 years.

Here is the full message in English:


Congratulations to The Greek Herald on 95 years of telling the stories, celebrating the successes and sharing the joys of Greek Australia.

Your first edition in 1926 referred to Australia as a ‘noble country’ that embraced strong multicultural foundations. Generations of Greek men and women have made a tremendous contribution to this legacy.

Australia is the most successful multicultural nation on Earth, and this is keenly illustrated in the pages of The Greek Herald where your readers find a wonderful celebration of our national harmony and diversity.

Scott Morrison has congratulated The Greek Herald on its 95th anniversary.

For 95 years, you have encouraged a greater understanding between Australia and Greece. And while the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted our way of life, the Australian spirit has shone through. At such a pivotal time for the nation, and your paper, The Greek Herald has raised spirits through stories of inspiration and hope.

Our National Plan to ensure we can live with the virus means we are looking to brighter days ahead. I am grateful to The Greek Herald for your efforts to support our plan to open safely and with confidence.

Congratulations again to all the staff, readers and supporters who have been part of The Greek Herald’s long and successful journey.

May there be many more birthdays to come.
