The events of WWII forced many Lithuanians to flee their country. Unable to return, over 10,000 came to Australia and of those 1,500 made South Australia their home. This is their history.

National Flower Day
1968, the Lithuanian community won a prize for their exhibit of flowers. The SA Government Tourist Bureau initiated the day and for a time it was not sure whether this event would go ahead due to the dry winter and summer. Flower day gave joy to thousands of people and visitors.
