A taste of Greece is coming to a Sydney Harbour island

Can't get to Mykonos or Hydra? Fear not, a Greek Island is coming to Sydney Harbour early next year. 

Brought to you by the crew behind the popular Wine Island festival, Greek Island will be a three-day holiday festival transforming Clark Island into an oasis of blue and white.

From Friday, March 25 to Sunday, March 27, Greek Island will showcase a line-up of Greek cuisine, imported wine, beer, spirits and bespoke cocktail bars. 

There will also be live Greek music and dancing, a spa for relaxation and a Mykonos seaside stage to with some of Australia’s best DJs.

The Mediterranean vibes will start as soon as all jetsetters board the ferries to travel over seas to Greek Island, receiving a glass of Amuse Rosé from Valley of the Muses, for their short journey.

Once on the island, they can enjoy one of several Greek Tavernas lining the foreshore including from chef Peter Conistis (Alpha) Kazzi Beach Greek, East 33 oysters, Lambda, Lookoomania and more. 

An abundance of fried calamari and school prawns, grilled octopus, spanakopita, souvlaki, gyros, loukoumades and other epicurean delights are promised by organisers. 

Complimentary live cooking demos will also be on offer while Greek beverages will be curated by Drink Greek, including premium Greek wines. 

Bringing the world-famous day party vibes of Mykonos will be DJs Tigerlily, Jolyon Petch and  Discovery (Daft Punk Tribute). 

Greek Island ambassador and chef Peter Conistis says: “I’m so excited to be part of such an amazing event coming to Sydney in 2022. 

"The magic of recreating a touch of the Greek Islands right it the middle of Sydney harbour will be truly breathtaking. 

"Three days of Greek food and wine is what we call Filoxenia - a state of mind and a way of life that Greeks have been nurturing over the centuries and are excited to share with everyone in Sydney next year.”
