Please note: this article is in Greek. The Australian national policy for immigration towards Greece and the Greek settlers of South Australia (1917–1930): In the years after the First World War Australian Immigration Policy towards Greece was stringent and regulated by the “White Australia Policy” and the employment needs of the country. Despite all these, during the period 1917–1930, Greek settlers or immigrants arrived in Australia in greater than before numbers, with the majority of them settling in Western Australia and New South Wales. A relative small number of Greek immigrants chose South Australia as a place of settlement, where their prospect of finding employment was relatively promising and prosperous. With many employment opportunities in the State’s West Coast townships of Port Pirie and Port Augusta (smelters, gypsum, salt works and railway expansion) Greeks congregated there in large numbers and formed a Community as early as 1924. In this paper we examine the Greek presence in South Australia during the years 1917–1930 in relation with the Immigration Policy of Australia at the time.
