Abstract: Please note: this article is in Greek. The Greek settlement in the Riverland: This paper will focus on the presence of the Greek element in the Riverland area. Firstly I examine the historical development of the Greek communities living in the main areas of Riverland: Paringa, Renmark, Berri, Barmera, Loxton and Waikerie by using census data from 1911–2006. Then I summarize the Greek involvement and their contribution to the agricultural sector in the development of the Riverland. Also describing and historically assessing the creation of the most significant cultural institutions like schools and churches as well as festivals and other cultural activities will be another focus. In some cases distinctive individuals will be highlighted. This research is based on official data, some limited previous academic research, the local press, interviews, as well as archival material from Greek institutions. In addition, over the last few years I conducted many interviews with local people and extracts from their stories will be presented.
