Wildlife documentary maker and photographer Austin J. Stevens, who is best known for wrangling venomous snakes, immigrated to Australia recently. Although he had travelled to Australia several times before moving here and is now accompanied by his Australian-born wife Amy, Austin is now wrangling with some of the issues well-known to other immigrants.

South African musician and actor Steve Hofmeyr will be hosted in Queensland by the Afrikaanse Klub Australië (AKA) in May.

At the time of going to press Steve was due to perform only at the Gateway Centre in Mackenzie, Brisbane. Additional performances are possible.

Steve told SAbona that he will be performing his new show Eenduisend en Een. As a rule the show includes his previous hits (‘Pampoen' and ‘Die Bloubul') and other projects (Kristofferson and Diamond). “We'll rock and get all nostalgic,” he says. “Do you remember the words for ‘Liefling'? I hope so!”

Tickets cost $75 for VIP tickets (front row seats), $150 for a family of two adults and two children under 16 years, $50 per adult and children under six years are free.

Early 2008 saw dark clouds gathering on the world's economic horizon. We decided it might be a good idea to look for a good job. After a couple of interviews for the position of general manager of tours for Kakadu National Park, we placed our own business Safari Holidays under management and I headed for Cooinda, a place I'd never heard of before. My wife Carol and the kids would follow once the school year drew to a close.

Bringing an occasional South African flavour to the Brisbane restaurant scene are Paul and Kim Newsham, owners of Olivetto's Restaurant in Red Hill, Brisbane.

Chef Paul, who was born in Lancashire, met South African-born Kim in London and then spent several years working in Durban before immigrating to Australia in August 2002.

Olivetto's serves modern European fare, but one of Paul's signature dishes is Bo-Kaap, a South African Cape Malay prawn and chicken curry, which is served with griddled banana, fragrant rice and a tomato and chilli sambal.

Think Dean Geyer and season four of Australian Idol immediately springs to mind. This young ex-South African singer songwriter actor, who has an exceptional singing voice, innocent disposition and charm, has stolen the hearts of many. A natural performer, with baby face good looks and an angelic smile, it is no surprise that he was offered a part in Neighbours, the drama series that made Kylie Minogue and Delta Goodrem famous. This talented and utterly modest entertainer recently spoke to Sabona about his craft, sporting prowess (he has a black belt in karate), immigration experience, tight knit family and plans for the future.
