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
By entering your email here, you will be informed of upcoming events which will open you up to the Aussie and Kiwi Community in Denmark. 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.
Southern Cross Club's AGM will be held at 6 pm on Wednesday 12 June 2019 at
our namesake the Southern Cross Pub, Løngangstræde 37, 1468 København K,
close to Tivoli and the Town Hall. We'll have the upstairs bar to ourselves.
After the meeting we can order food in and have a drink together.
The committee urges all members to attend! The club is in danger of folding and
we need your input as to where we should be going. We also need new
committee members. This needn't be seen as a daunting task: we meet at each
others homes, or occasionally elsewhere, eat dinner together and have time
to enjoy each other's company as well as discussing club business. But
please don't let fear of being shanghaied on to the committee prevent you
from attending the AGM!
Simon, your secretary, has long been toying with the idea of arranging a
visit to some of the Aussie and Kiwi war graves in Denmark. If you're
interested in this, please tell Simon at the meeting. Or if you can't attend
reply to this mail instead.
Simon also arranges tramps, bushwalks, or whatever we choose to call them in
this civilised part of the world for another club, which you are welcome to
join. If there is enough demand he will arrange something similar just for
Southern Cross Club. The next two walks are on 13 June in Sweden and on 20
June west of Roskilde. Details are found on vandrefuglene.dk, or reply to
this mail if you don't understand Danish.
Other events the committee have been discussing are our annual Christmas
Party, camping weekends, meeting at a restaurant for dinner, pub evenings
and brunches. We would dearly like to hear what our members are interested
in us organising. Remember that members can also post on our website
(www.southerncrossclub.dk) as well as in our Facebook group so please use
this opportunity. You might for example organise a group to see an Aussie or
Kiwi band playing in Denmark. We want to be a vessel offering communication
with other Aussies and Kiwis, where it doesn't have to be the committee
which organises everything.
We have been having problems with our communication with members which we
are trying to sort out. So if you receive this mail please pass it on to
other Kiwis and Aussies in Denmark you know. And in case you should receive
it twice, we do apologise.
If by some chance you no longer wish to be involved with the Southern Cross
Club, please do not blacklist us as spam!! This will prevent members
receiving mails from us. Instead use the link at the end of the mails you receive from us.
We do hope to see a good turnout at the AGM.

Three Australian films are being shown at Cinemateket, Gothersgade, Copenhagen on Saturday 26 January 2019. The films are free, but require booking through Cinemateket. Between two of the films there will be free wine tasting and snacks. See https://www.dfi.dk/cinemateket/biograf
At the end of the French President's visit to Australia as a good Frenchman he wanted to compliment his host Malcolm Turnbull's wife: "Thank you and your delicious wife for your warm welcome". Lady Turnbull decided not to comment. The French word "delicieux" has a rather wider meaning than the English "delicious".
NOV 1, 2018 —
As part of the 2018 budget, the UK government has revealed that citizens of Canada, Australia and New Zealand will be able to use e-passport gates to enter the United Kingdom, thereby easing movement of all visitors and permit holders at UK airports.
Chancellor Philip Hammond announced the plans to make it easier for citizens from Canada, Australia and New Zealand to come to the United Kingdom, either to visit or work, in a Budget to prepare the United Kingdom for its upcoming departure from the European Union.
