Hellenic Museum

Hellenic Museum

The Hellenic Museum aims to be the nation's foremost centre of Hellenic history, culture and the arts. It is a place where the public can explore the legacy of the Greek immigrant experience in Australia and examine the influence of Hellenic culture and people, from antiquity to the present.


Hellenic Immigration and Settlement
Australia was relatively unknown to the Greeks. During 1829 to 1974. 300,000 Greeks migrated and settled to this southern continent. Some of the earliest settlers were convicted of piracy against the British Navy, or were fortune hunters or gold diggers. Discover some of their stories and witness the significant contribution made to the great multicultural community, which Australia is renowned for.

The Trendall Collection
A.D. (Dale) Trendall was a legendary figure and one of the foremost historians of Greek art of the 20th century. He was the principal authority on the red-figure vases produced in the Greek colonies and native areas of South Italy and Sicily during the 5th and 4th centuries BCE.

The Mary and Peter Mitrakas Collection of Cypriot Antiquities
The current vases in the collection form part of one of the largest private collections of Cypriot antiquities in the world. They were once in the collection of the renown classical scholar Leto Severis of Nicosia and span a period of 1200 years, between 1800 - 600 B.C.

Cast Ancient Greek Statues
The Hellenic Museum has a collection of cast statues from the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and the Greek National Archaeological Museum. The 10 statues showcase sculptures from different epochs of Ancient Greece.
