Welcome to the Southern Cross Club
The Southern Cross Club is a social club for Aussies and Kiwis living in Denmark.
Our goal is provide our members with a network, organise get-togethers and events where we, as a club,
can have some fun and keep in touch with what's going on downunder.
If you're a Kiwi or an Aussie living here in, or on your way to, Denmark,
you're welcome to keep an eye on what's going on here on our website - but we'd rather you joined :-)
The membership fee (both single and family) is pretty reasonable really,
and we'll not only keep you up to date on our social events, but you'll also be entitled to discounts.
Basically it comes down to your level of participation - like all things - and how much
you are willing to enjoy the club and the activities we organise.
Make sure you sign up NOW so you're not left out.
By signing up you'll be able to meet people from home,
share your wisdom throughout our community as well as receive our regular
club emails with the latest in club news and events.
We ask that our members pay a subscription. Singles 100 kr, Family or Couples 180 kr and members from Funen,
Jutland and Sweden 75 kr.
This covers our basic costs for the administration of the Club including newsletters,
internet and supplements to some of our events. We also ask that our members get involved in our activities and
maybe inspire and motivate us to other activities.
All monies to The Club should be paid to the Clubs account
registration number 1551 account number 3046613.
The next two pub evenings will be held on September 13 and November 8 at Café Globen, Turesensgade 5B, near Oerstedsparken and between Noerreport and Vesterport Stations. Come along and meet some fellow Aussies and Kiwis.
Our pub evenings are normally held monthly, but the second Friday of October is Kulturnat in Copenhagen. You could maybe look for others to experience it with you via this forum.
AGM and BBQ
The club's AGM will be held on September 1 at 2pm. At 4pm there will be a BBQ. Members should have received information on this. Non-members are welcome to join us at the BBQ, although of course we'd love you to join the club. For details send a mail to email@example.com
and Mark will reply to you.
Shipping personal belongings from New Zealand
Does anyone know anything about shipping personal belongings from NZ to DK? About who does it? And how to find a safe, reliable and not too expensive way to do it.
Alternatively is anyone else in the same situation? It might be cheaper for us to ship our things together.
SANKT HANS 23 JUNE 2013
'We have found a witch - may we burn her?' - Yes, it's that time of year
again in Denmark, where witches get burnt to honour Midsummer, so why not
join in and combine the best of both cultures, by having a barbie and a
After the success of the SCC (Belated) Anzac Day Barbie, Mark and Lotte
would like to invite as many SCC members as possible to their place on
Sunday June 23rd, from about 1600, with barbie around 1700-ish, and lighting
the fire (and the witch) around 19-2000 (a little earlier than traditional
for DK, to be kind to the 'kids' present).
Once again, it'll be a BYO barbie - bring your own meat and drinks (and
maybe a chair, if possible) plus a plate/bowl of salad to share. Mark and
Lotte will, like last time, provide some snags/hot dogs for the kids,
marshmallows for the fire (once it's died down a little) and maybe some
damper dough. With any luck, the only thing we'll be burning apart from
Please email the SCC committee email for
address details, and RSVP by Friday June 21st.
PUB EVENING 14 JUNE 2013
Our next pub evening is on Friday 14 June at Café Globen, the travellers'
club pub at Turesensgade 2B, near H. C. Řrstedsparken and within walking
distance of both Nřrreport and Vesterport Stations as well as a myriad of
bus routes. We'll be there at 7.30pm. Look out for the flags. If you want to
come earlier there's happy hour from 3pm to 6pm! If you want to buy
takeaways from any of the nearby takeaway places you're welcome to take them
in and Globen will lend you knives and forks or whatever to eat them.
There was a good turnout last month, so we hope for a repeat of the success
Remember that we have a pub evening on the 2nd Friday of every month. The
plan now is to hold them regularly at Café Globen, but check our website in
case of any changes.
