Many Sabona readers either live in Australia already, or have family or friends living in ‘the land down under'. It is natural for migrant families to bring their extended family members across to join them in Australia.

One aspect of moving to a new country that has (also for me personally) been an issue, is the guilty conscience that results from separating one's children from their grandparents, uncles or aunts and cousins. It is therefore appropriate, I reckon, to look at a number of visa options for family reunions.

Die Afrikaanse Klub gholfdag is vanjaar op 17 Oktober op die North Lakes baan noord van Brisbane gehou. Ons het besluit om die jaar 'n meer ‘formele' gholfdag te hou en die manne met die stokke is behoorlik getoets op die baan wat onder die top 100 gholfbane in Australië tel.

South Africans showed what they are made of when they participated in the Perth City to Surf event recently. The event serves as a fundraiser for Activ, a charity that provides services for 2,300 people with disabilities, as well as their families. Close to 40,000 people participated this year. The main attraction of the event, which has been run for 35 years, is the 12km walk or run from St Georges Terrace to the City Beach Oval. This year the event incorporated a 42.2km marathon for the first time, as well as a half-marathon, the 12km race, an 11km wheelchair race and a four kilometre walk or run. With free transport from and to the event, including a bus ride back to the starting point, it was a well organised event with few hiccups.

As many native English speakers have discovered on moving to Australia, a shared language does not mean a shared culture.

Many South Africans, Americans and Britons who migrate to Australia expect to settle in quickly and easily and will have been unpleasantly surprised by just how difficult it was to feel at home here. For South Africans particularly, coming from a country where the climate, lifestyle and even landscape are very similar, it doesn't seem unreasonable to expect that Australia will just be a safer version of ‘back home'.

Hugh Masekela, legendary South African jazz flugelhorn player, trumpeter, composer and singer is making his Australian debut tour with a select series of concerts. Now aged 70, the musician, whose sumptuously warm flugelhorn sound contrasts with his exuberantly gravelly voice, was last seen in Sydney two decades ago when he played in Paul Simon's Graceland tour. The legendary jazz flugelhorn player, trumpeter, composer and singer, and iconic anti-apartheid figure, will perform a best-of collection from his extensive back catalogue and tracks from his 35th studio album Phola. The concerts in October is set to be a moving journey through the African continent, offering a glimpse into the personal and political journey of Masekela.

Paddy Johnson from Tweed Heads in New South Wales recently contacted the Africa Club with a proposal to have an annual Saffie/Zimbo camping weekend. It sounded like a great idea and any reason to pack the tents in the Toyota and head off somewhere seems like a reasonable thing to do. We only had a couple of weeks to gather the troops…and it was Mother's Day weekend as well. So things weren't looking up for a huge gathering. On the other hand, the weather was looking great and why not get away for the trip?
