As one of the first Greek immigrants from the island of Kythera after the First World War, the migration journey of Van Moulis’s maternal grandfather can be traced back a century. Just as poverty and oppression forced his maternal grandfather’s departure from Greece, Van’s paternal grandparents also decided to migrate from Northern Greece.
Van’s parents met at Sydney’s Greek Ball, organised for young single immigrants to meet and find marriage partners. Van’s father joined his new family in Taree in the north coast of NSW, after emigrating from Greece soon after the end of the Second World War, and worked at the family’s cafe and restaurant, The Elite. These days, Van’s family consider their first home Australia, where both his grandparents and father are buried.
