In case you missed it, Wine Island is back in 2022, complete with stunning harbour views and cocktails galore. But that’s not all. The team behind the highly awaited vino fest is bringing another exciting celebration to the city and this time it’s an ode to Greece. The three-day festival, dubbed Greek Island, will see Sydney’s Clarke Island transformed into all things blue and white with Greek food, music and dancing.

Greek Island 2021

From March 25-27, you can experience a variety of delectable Greek cuisine, right from fried calamari and school prawns to grilled octopus and spanakopita, imported wine and beer and live Greek music and dancing at Clarke Island.

Aiming to whisk us away to the stunning Mediterranean, the party promises to be a fun and authentic Greek holiday experience.

Attendees will board the ferries with a glass of Amuse Rosé from Valley of the Muses to start off their adventure. Highlights include live performances by DJs Tigerlily, Jolyon Petch and and Discovery (Daft Punk Tribute) along with complimentary live cooking demos.

Want to make a holiday out of it? There’s a Santorini spa on site along with a seaside stage and Greek taverns to escape to. True to theme, cocktails include everything from ‘Santorini Sunset’ to the ‘Mykonos Mule’ along with dedicated Frouzo, Ouzo and Tsipouro bars for a true European experience.

Prefer some adrenaline in your holidays? Hop on an Oz Boat Jet ride for a ride around the harbour.

Greek Island ambassador and Chef, Peter Conistis says “The magic of recreating a touch of the Greek Islands right it the middle of Sydney harbour will be truly breathtaking. Three days of Greek food and wine is what we call “Filoxenia” – a state of mind and a way of life that Greeks have been nurturing over the centuries and are excited to share with everyone in Sydney next year.”


Greek Island ticket packages include the $99 premium economy experience where you can take advantage of the ferry transfers, a drink to go along with the view and a branded beach tote and tumbler.

The $199 business class experience includes all of the above along with access the Corfu Beach Club with complimentary ouzo & wine tastings. You also get to enjoy sprawling views of the harbour and a taste of luxury with luxe décor.

Or you can shake off the last year and make a true event of it by booking the $3300 private waterfront cabanas that can host up to ten people. Find more info about the event and packages here. 

There’s something for everyone at this party.
