Greeks in Queensland

In 1925 Innisfail established its own Greek association "The Hellenic Society of North Queensland", which in 1935 became the Greek Orthodox Community of Innisfail. This community covered a large area in northern Queensland as Greeks would regularly travel from remote locations to attend traditional events. The Taifalos brothers, along with other Greeks, played an integral role in the establishment of this association and helped form the first Greek Orthodox community of Far North Queensland. They were also heavily involved in agriculture and in 1925 the Taifalos brothers procured 85 acres of land in Silkwood and starting supplying sugar cane to the South Johnstone sugar mill in the region of Innisfail in North Queensland.
