GREEK cuisine has a long tradition dating back 4000 years.

And with tasty dishes such as baklava, tzatziki, gyro, moussaka and souvlaki, it is sure to be around for another 4000.

The Nanango RSL showcased the many Greek delicacies alongside traditional Greek music, dancing, drinks and games as part of its Greek Festival at the weekend.

RSL manager Sheena Lindholm said the Greek Festival was an opportunity to give members and guests some new experiences.

"The festival is inspired by some of the Greek cuisine restaurants we tried down in Brisbane,” Ms Lindholm said.

While the innovative manager wanted to include the traditional Greek custom of smashing plates on the day, sadly it wasn't to be.

"It was very difficult with insurance, unfortunately,” Ms Lindholm said.

Attendees enjoyed getting into the theme by donning togas, sandals and impressive headdresses for the event.

Those who did not arrive in Greek-themed get-up were quickly converted in the toilet paper Greek outfit competition.

It was one of many competitions and games held on the day, including a Medusa snakes lucky dip and of course, the Zorba dance.
