“The Kingdom of Greece is not Greece. Greece constitutes only one part, the smallest and poorest. A Greek is not only a man who lives within this kingdom but also one who lives in Jannina, in Salonica, in Serres, in Adrianople, in Constantinople, in Smyrna, in Trebizond, in Crete, in Samos and in any land associated with Greek history or the Greek race ............

Booklet published upon the declaration of Dubbo as a City, Monday 12th September, 1966.

Preserved by Marina S Pentes.

The extensive presence of Kytherians in the Central West of New South Wales, centred on Dubbo, can be gauged from the vast number of advertisements in this booklet.

Was an advertisement placed by one of your family members in the booklet?

The Kytherian history of the Central West of NSW has never been fully explored.

It takes a special kind of radar to fly to the Middle East, walk past one of the Gulf's finest shopping centres and home-in, accidentally, on what may well be the region's only Aussie pub.

Who was the FIRST Kytherian immigrant to Australia?

I am not certain but Athanasios Kominos, from the village of Perleyianika near Potamos, landed in Sydney in 1873, probably as a seaman from New Zealand, when he was 29. He was the son of a farmer, Dimitrios Kominos and his wife Agapi, nee Menega. He had lived in Smyrna for some years. Worked in a colliery in Balmain in Sydney. Said to have opened a fish shop in Oxford Street in 1878 and later owned oyster leases in NSW.

John D. Kominos, at one time a labourer in Pireaus, arrived ...

Now, almost two years after the up­grade work started, that priority is becom­ing a reality.

The closest Bondi beach has come to having a flag is the yellow and red, placed as a marker of where to show you the safest places for swimming.
Now, Australia’s most famous beach really does have its own flag.
Waverley Council has approved a proposal for a flag from George Poulos, who said ...
