Considerable risk to get busted. Afaik, Ryanair checks the status of all non-EU travellers at check-in, even on domestic flights. They won't let you board, and if you're unlucky enough to find a zealous ground crew member, you are quite likely to leave the airport in police custody, awaiting deportation to Australia.

Going to Greece in your situation would be phenomenally stupid, the Greek people are really strict. You would get charged a huge fine and land with your arse in a holding cell, guaranteed.

The safest course of action in your case would be to either fly home or go over to Morocco for 3 months by ferry. If you have been to Morocco already fly to Egypt or Istanbul and then go overland through Jordan and Syria to either Turkey or Egypt.

This is what you get if you violate the terms of your visa. Frankly, I don't feel much sympathy for people being in a mess they created themselves :)
