Darwin GleNTi returns with a bang in 2024 – The Greek Herald


Darwin’s Greek Glenti festival put on another fantastic display over the King’s Birthday long weekend, with traditional music, dancing, costumes, and cuisine crammed into Bicentennial Park.

According to Courier Mail, queues for drinks and food snaked between tables piled high with plates of grilled meat and salad, as families celebrated Darwin’s Mediterranean community.

Nik Halkitis, president of the Darwin Olympic Soccer Club, stated that the event was well attended.

“Another great turnout that’s for sure… also (a lot) of volunteers…plenty of people getting behind it,” Halkitis said.

Mark Collier, a tourist who attended on the day was pleasantly surprised by Darwin’s multiculturalism.

“I didn’t know this was on, I looked out the hotel window and saw there were gazebos and stalls being pitched and wanted to see what was happening,” Collier said.

“It’s a nice event, I didn’t know Darwin had much of a multicultural community.”

The Darwin Greek Glenti is recognised as North Australia’s biggest Greek festival which takes place each year.
