Welcome to the Kastellorizian Association of Victoria Inc.

For almost 100 years ‘The Kastellorizian Association of Victoria’ has supported the welfare of Kastellorizians and Greeks in Victoria.  We are proud of our legacy and the goodwill of our community that is truly committed to the support and welfare of diaspora Kastellorizians, Greeks and the wider community.

We are proud to also support the preservation of Kastellorizian heritage and the continuation of Greek culture as a part of our vibrant multicultural society. This encourages our youth and future generations to continue the traditions of the association in supporting those less fortunate in the spirit of the islands symbol that represents ‘faith, hope and charity’.

If you would like to work with us to support our mission, please contact me or members of our KAV Committee.
