With the famous Lonsdale Street Greek Precinct undergoing renovations that will be complete in time for the festival, there will be tons of new greenery, repaired bluestone pavers and improved dining facilities to enjoy at Antipodes Festival.

“Melbourne’s Lonsdale St Greek precinct is a vibrant hub of culture and celebration,” said Lord Mayor Sally Capp. “For decades Lonsdale St has been the home of our Greek community, boasting some of the best restaurants in the city and hosting the annual Antipodes Greek Festival.”
