Some of the active Greek communities and institutions in Sydney are:

  • The Hellenic Historical and Cultural Centre NSW
  • The Greek Orthodox Community of NSW
  • The Greek Film Society 
  • The Mytilenian Brotherhood of Sydney & NSW
  • The Kytherian Association
  • Atlas Greek Community Centre
  • The Castellorizian Association NSW 
  • The Pondian Club NSW
  • The Kalymnian Association NSW
  • The Cretan Association of Sydney and NSW
