Welcome to the Southern Cross Club
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.
You can also find us on Facebook
We are currently not charging a subscription fee for becoming a member, so now's 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 thoroughly enjoyable for young and old. Please feel free to contact us with ideas and events that you think might be relevant for the members.

Day Tramp in Sweden
On 28 September I'm arranging a tramp (about 10 to 12 km) in a coastal area Sweden for Vandrefuglene. At the moment we have a few spare places. Details are found in Danish at vandrefuglene.dk in the calender. You need to book and pay transport beforehand, and on 19 September at the latest. Transport costs DKK 250. If you want to go by car we start and finish at different places so you'll need to find your own way back to your car. Contact Simon 20 94 98 five2.

Historical Walk in Lille Hareskov
You are all invited to Southern Cross Club's Historical Walk in Lille Hareskov on Sunday 13. August 2023.
Lille Hareskov is a very old forest; it has never been cultivated, and therefore it still contains a number of old stones, graves etc.
The walk will take us to see some old dolmen, which are graves dating back to the stone age, some ’rillesten’ which are stones with a groove cut into them, and also some old oak trees, including The Devil.
I will be your guide and tell you about the old graves and stones etc.
The walk will take about 2.5 hours, and we will mostly, but not always, follow the paths, so bring sturdy footwear.
The walk will finish at the Skovlyst Brewery, where we can have a beer, or softdrink. Members of The Southern Cross Club will get a beer for free.
We will meet at the parking lot on the Northern side of the Skovlyst Brewery at 14:00.
The Skovlyst Brewery is located at Skovlystvej 2, Hareskovby, 3500 Værløse.
For more information about Skovlyst, see www.bryggeriskovlyst.dk
If you use public transport: From Skovlyst there is less than 2 km to Hareskov station, and about 0.7 km to the nearest bus stop, bus 165. See Rejseplanen.
We hope to see lots of SCC members on August 13. You are welcome to bring your friends along too. And we'd like to know in advance if you plan to attend. Thanks.
