The event was created to introduce the unique and exciting culture to the region, with anyone and everyone of all nationalities encouraged to come along learn about South African food and culture.

A buffet style meal of authentic South African food will be on offer as well as music and a cauldron raffle. 

Dimbulah Community Centre manager Grace Armenti said the Braai and Sookie night would help locals not only learn about the culture and diversity of South Africa but help create connections and relationships in the community.

“This is their version of a barbeque celebration and it’s a great way for the community to get together, learn and eat real South African cuisine,” she said.

“We are interested in the culture and as it is kind of a new culture to Dimbulah – we want to learn more about it and find ways to give those families a sense of belonging.”

The event will be hosted at the Dimbulah Memorial Hall on 10 September, with tickets available from the Dimbulah Community Centre on 4093 5444.

Adults are $30 each, children 6-17 years old are $15 and under 5 years are for free. If you wish to attend please RSVP before 2 September. The event is partly funded by the Mareeba Shire Council’s RADF grants for 2022.
