About us

We are a group of friends who have a common interest in South Africa. We have either lived in South Africa or have some passion for South Africa. Many still have relatives in South Africa or have some business interest. We get together for drinks every last Tuesday evening of the month at the Hackney Hotel, 95 Hackney Rd, Hackney, Adelaide. We meet from 6:00 p.m. onwards. Everyone is welcome to come along and newcomers to Adelaide will find this a pleasant environment to make new friends and contacts. Please note, this is not a formal event and all you have to do, is to find a group of friendly faces around a table. The South African Network also arranges at least three or four functions a year, where the whole family can get together for a braai, potjie or something similar. These functions are usually well supported and should not be missed.

More about Adelaide

Adelaide is the capital South Australia. It is an elegant city featuring traditional stone architecture and wide encircling parklands. The city was designed by Colonel William Light in 1836. He laid his city out on a square mile grid pattern of wide streets and airy squares with a buffer zone of green parklands encircling it. South Australia lies approximately between the 26th and 38th Parallels of latitude and the 129th and 141st meridians of east longitude. Adelaide has a population of just over 1 million. Adelaide has a Mediterranean type climate with warm dry summers and cool winters. The average rainfall is 585mm annually and it generally falls between the months of May and August. Long periods of continuous rain are rare. The mean maximum temperatures range from between 29.6 degrees Celsius in January and 15.0 degrees Celsius in July.
