Greek Australians (Greek: Ελληνοαυστραλοί, Ellinoafstrali) comprise Australians who have full or partial Greek heritage or people who sought asylum as refugees after the Greek Civil War or emigrated from Greece and reside in Australia. The 2016 census recorded 397,431 people of Hellenic/ Greek ancestry, and 93,740 born in Greece, making Australia home to one of the largest Greek communities in the world.
Greeks are the seventh largest ethnic group in Australia. In the 2011 census, 378,270 people were reported to have Greek ancestry, either exclusively or in combination with another ethnic group, up from 365,147 in the 2006 census which recorded 125,849 people born in Greece. The 2016 also census recorded 16,929 people born in Cyprus and 28,991 people with Cypriot ancestry (many of whom are Greek Cypriots). The 2011 census recorded 18,070 people born in Cyprus and 22,680 people with Cypriot ancestry. The 2006 census recorded 18,369 people born in Cyprus and 29,005 people of Cypriot ancestry. Greeks and Cypriots in Australia collectively total 422,234 people.
Greek immigration to Australia has been one of the largest migratory flows in the history of Australia, especially after World War II and Greek Civil War. As of 2015 the flow of migrants from Greece has in fact increased due to the economic crisis in Greece, with Australia as one of the main destinations, mainly to Melbourne where the Greek Australian community is most established.
