Greek-Cypriot settlement in South Australia in the 1950s

Maria Shialis



The article investigates the settlement of Greek-Cypriot migrants in South Australia during the 1950s. The aim is to examine the experiences of Greek-Cypriot migrants, and look at established groups in the Greek-Cypriot community, to have understanding of the social structure and the mechanisms that helped migrants settle into an Anglo-Celtic Australian society. This article will utilize first hand experiences, and document individual and group accounts, which otherwise would have been lost. By documenting these accounts, the paper will be a useful resource for future research done on this minority group, but will also fill in gaps in our history.
