Commonwealth Games 2018: Opening ceremony wows fans on the Gold Coast

Australia's indigenous culture, beach lifestyle and famous music played starring roles in the opening ceremony at the 2018 Commonwealth Games on Wednesday evening.

The conclusion of the Queen’s Baton relay, promotion of diversity and inclusion – key themes of this year's event - an iconic Kombi van and Migaloo the whale also featured on a night when Prince Charles officially opened the 21st Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.

More than 4000 performers entertained 35,000 fans, with indigenous culture - which dates back at least 65,000 years - a constant theme of the night amid a series of performances, dances and a didgeridoo orchestra.

Christine Anu, Ricki-Lee Coulter and Delta Goodrem all sang but, with the exception of Anu, were outshone by a local group who provided orchestral interpretations of dozens of classic Aussie songs.

And, of course, the athletes themselves were central to the evening, with all 70 nations and territories at the event receiving warm receptions from a damp Carrara Stadium crowd.

Australia Considers Fast-Tracking White South Africa Farmer Visas

Visa for South Africa farmers

Australian Immigration and Border Protection minister Peter Dutton says that his department is considering fast-tracking the visas of white South African farmers looking to emigrate to Australia, because the group deserves "special attention" due to the "horrific circumstances" they face in South Africa.

The immigration minister noted that Australia has refugee, humanitarian and other visa programmes that have the "potential to help some of these people".

Reports claim that he has asked his department to look at the options "...because from what I have seen, they do need help from a civilised country like ours".

"If you look at the footage and read the stories, you hear the accounts; it's a horrific circumstance they face," Dutton said. "The people we're talking about want to work hard; they want to contribute to a country like Australia," Dutton said.

"We want people who want to come here, abide by our laws, integrate into our society, work hard, not lead a life on welfare. And I think these people deserve special attention, and we're certainly applying that special attention now."

Dutton said his department was looking at ways to help "some of these horrific cases" and suggested an announcement could be made shortly.

When asked if this could be achieved with the South African government's cooperation, Dutton replied that Australia "...can work with governments all around the world".

Migration agents warn against visa category overhaul

Visa category

Migration agents have warned against the Turnbull government's plans for a major visa overhaul to drastically reduce the number of categories on offer, saying it would impact the success rate for applicants.

The Coalition is waiting on advice from the Department of Home Affairs on how to cut the current 99 visa categories down to 10 in what would be the single biggest immigration change in more than two decades.

A migration agent told SBS News that it's going to be very difficult to handle all of the applications, the type of applications that 99 visa categories handle, and narrow them down to ten visa subclasses.

With fewer categories applicants will be more likely to go it alone with their paperwork and it will undoubtedly result in more visa rejections.

Immigration law is not easy. Individuals and businesses doing their own visa applications, there is going to be an increase in refusals and appeals.

 

Migration transforms our country towns

international migration

In the big Australia debate we should not neglect the role of international migration to small town Australia. Diversity is not just a city thing.

Just as migration is the future of cities, small towns here in Australia are growing through migration and this is transforming their fortunes. This is no accident, small town communities themselves are leading the way.

To illustrate the trend, the Regional Australia Institute (RAI) has taken a closer look at significant migrant settlements in our small towns and local areas.

To paint a picture of diversity in regions the RAI used Census data to determine the areas that have a significant concentration of particular ethnic groups residing permanently in local communities.

The results will surprise those who see rural Australia as the stubborn last bastion of 20th century white Australia.

Across Australia, we are seeing significant clusters of Maoris, Taiwanese, Filipinos, Karen, Germans, Italians, Papua New Guineans, South Africans, Irish, as well as French. Our ‘Top 60’ regional ethnic communities include small towns from Western Australia through to Victoria and north to Queensland.
