Everything you need to know about Greek fest in the Hunter


The Darling harbour Greek Festival of Sydney is coming to the Hunter, ‘Greek Fest in the Hunter’ is an authentic celebration of all things Greek delivered to the picturesque Hope Estate. This festival is bursting with food, entertainment and culture and here’s why we think you should grab yourself a ticket.

Food & Drink

Think market stalls filled with sweet loukoumades dripping with honey, cheesy Spanakopita and juicy Yeeros just to name a few. If you can’t find something to eat here, you’re just not trying! Some of Darling Harbour’s favourite vendors are making the trip, bringing this authentic Mediterranean experience to the Hunter. For those who are after a more formal food experience, you need to get yourself a seat at the table of the VIP Greek Fest Lunch. This is a 3-course event with a classically Greek set menu. The lunch is a ticketed event, click the button to find out more.

If you are more into grazing with a glass of wine, we recommend you take a look at the hamper options when booking your ticket. The hampers are bursting with bite-sized goodness and you get to choose from a selection of Hope Estate Wines. There are a couple of bottles of water, some disposable plates & cutlery and it is all served in a neat little reusable cooler bag so there is no need to pack a thing. There are plenty of options to cover most dietary needs so check out the full list of hamper and ticket bundles.

All adult tickets give access to the beer cave… you heard us right… There’s a beer cave! And if beer isn’t your tipple, there’s also the spirits tasting bar to check out as well as free Ouzo tasting included in all adult tickets.


There are a number of live acts performing throughout the festival with a program that fills the entire day! Dimitris Basis is returning to Australia, travelling from Greece to headline the musical festivities. In addition to his performance there is a full day line-up of entertainment running from 11am to 6pm. The program includes national dance troupes and a variety of Greek bands and entertainers as well as the delightful Dimitri.
