Gold Coast Vriendekring
Ons wil graag ‘n vriendekring onder Afrikaners aan die Gold Coast tot stand bring. Daar is geen geheime agendas nie. Enige een is welkom, selfs mense wat nie in ons area woon nie. Jy kan maar net opdaag as jy wil. Ons kuier net lekker saam. Jy hoef nie lid te wees van 'n klub nie. Ons skakel in by die byeenkomste van die Afrikaanse klub maar reel ekstra byeenkomste vir mense wat in die Gold Coast omgewing bly. Let wel ons is nie in kompetisie met die Afrikaanse klub nie maar aanvullend. Ons is egter nie 'n klub nie slegs 'n vriendekring. Die mense van die Sunshine Coast doen dit al 'n geruime tyd met groot sukses. Enigeen is welkom, ook mense van Brisbane.

SAussies Events - Sunshine Coast
G’day to all the new residents on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. Yes, it’s true, we do believe this is the best place in Australia, if not the world, to live.

Since most of the people that are, in some way or another, related to one another due to friendships or business relations, we could assist new residents to this area in a matter of ways.

Just to make it easier on you, so that you don’t waist time looking for the catch, we are not going to charge you money however you may make a donation if you wish.

This site is mere a friendly and free service to assist fellow Ex-Southern Africans to connect with other people, private and business, which would make your start on the Sunshine Coast an easier one.

We might be able to give assistance like information on schooling, where to shop for specific products, how the different services work, areas to live in and even assisting in finding the right church for you and your family.

Making a start in a new place, especially if you have moved from one country to another, or even interstate, is very difficult and our aim is to try and make it just a little bit easier.

The Southern African Tasmanian Network
A point of contact for all Southern Africans living in Tasmania!

We are not forming a Club for ex-Southern Africans and are unlikely to organise many special events, but there has been an increasing demand to create a communication facility for persons in Tasmania with a southern African background. We are not aware of any comprehensive database of people of Southern African origin now living in Tasmania. When asked to:

>> Find or recommend a dentist or medical practitioner;
>> Provide a reference to a plumber, builder, electrician or mechanic;
>> Get information about schools, butchers, bakers or grocery shops;
>> Suggest where one should live, and why;
>> Recommend a half-way honest car dealer;
>> Help find a church you may like;
>> Be there to provide some familiar support if needed, and so forth,
... it would be good if we knew what to say.

Every now and then a situation develops where a South African family living in Tasmania may find themselves in a difficult situation and more often than not, if we can stand together, we can offer encouragement and assistance. We hope to avoid situations (as we recently had) where new arrivals from South Africa had a tragic occurrence, and no nearby friends or family to turn to for help or consolation. This may not be you today, but we never know what can happen in the future.

What we are asking is for you to consider providing us with your updated information. And if we know of any other South African people who are playing golf, paddling kayaks, watching rugby or having a “braai”, and who want like minded company, to forward this email to them so that they also can have the opportunity to be part of the network. If you wish to participate in this facility, or know of someone else who would like to participate, please add your details to the attached list and send it back to nico.smit@bigpond.com.
