Welcome to the Southern Cross Club
The Southern Cross Club is a social club for Aussies and Kiwis living in Denmark.
Our goal is to provide our members with a much needed network whilst living so far away from home. We organise random get-togethers and annual events that bring us together as a community and help keep people informed about the news from Denmark and Downunder.
If you're a Kiwi or an Aussie living in Denmark, then sign up for our free newsletter!
You can also find us on Facebook

We promise not to SPAM your inbox with useless information, but to share with you the low down of what's happening in Denmark, Australia and New Zealand and what we think might be relevant for you.
We are currently not charging a subscription fee for becoming a member, so nows the time to jump in and become a member. Use the link below, send us an email request and we'll sort the rest out for you. Yes, it's that easy!
We would really like all members to get involved in the club and make it into something that is thouroughly enjoyable for young and old. Please feel free to contact us with ideas and events that you think might be relevant for the members.

We received the following message from the NZ ambassador in Stockholm:
"I would like to inform you that, as of last Friday 25 October, the responsibility for NZ’s diplomatic relationship with Denmark has shifted from the New Zealand Embassy in The Hague to the New Zealand Embassy in Stockholm. We are now responsible for all the Nordic countries."
The Kurdish-Iranian author, journalist and activist Behrouz Boochani has had a mention in the Danish newspaper "Information"´s book section (16 August 2019). He wrote his book "No Friend but the Mountains" from his incarceration on Manus. Painstakingly sent via messages from his mobile phone to his friend who translated it to English, it won the Victorian Prize for Literature. He couldn't come to the ceremony as he wasn't allowed to enter Australia. The news comes up now, as he has now also won the National Biography Award. He made his thank you speech via mobile phone, where he amongst other things said that history will condemn this generation, and it will condemn us all in this hard and dark period in Australia's history.

NZ band Tiny Ruins playing at Malmö Festival today, Friday 9 August, at 5.30pm on Gustavscenen. See you there!
The Wild West
If anyone would like to meet up with a couple of fellow countrymen (I've forgotten what the gender neutral version of "countrymen" is) from the Wild West (i.e. Jutland), turn up "Under Uret" (under the clock in the middle of the main hall at the main railway station in Copenhagen) at 11.30 am on Sunday 4 August. From there we'll probably find a café.
