The Marrickville Road precinct is now known as "Little Greece" in honour of the invaluable and ongoing contribution the Greek community has made to Marrickville and the Inner West. The decision by Inner West Council confirms what Marrickville residents already know - Marrickville is a little slice of Greece, right here in Sydney. In addition to the nearby St Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church and Hellenic Theatre, Marrickville is home to long-running family businesses like Lamia Deli, Hellenic Patisserie and Gelato Bar, Athena Cakes, Faros Seafood, Cafe Kafedaki and the Corinthian Rotisserie. High school teacher Vasilis Vasilas has captured the rich history of these and the 80 other local Greek businesses that have built Marrickville for over 50 years in his book, Little Athens. Little Greece in Marrickville now joins Little Portugal in Petersham and Little Italy in Leichhardt and Inner West Council has also indicated they are working to establish Little Vietnam on Illawarra Road, Marrickville, to recognise the contribution of the Vietnamese community. I congratulate all Greek Australians who call the inner west home and thank them for all they do to make Marrickville the extraordinary place it is today.
