Welcome to Australopers!
Orienteering is one of the greatest kept secrets in the world today. No
other activity combines fitness, skill, social interaction and just the
joy of being out in the bush – and new bush every weekend! – as
We are a long way from the epicentre of
orienteering in Europe and more specifically Scandinavia. Nonetheless
here in Tasmania we have a wonderful climate for orienteering and some
fantastic terrain. Australopers is the largest club in Tasmania and one
of the most successful in Australia. At the 2012 Easter competition in
Queensland we were only a point or so away from taking the national
club prize – against 30 or so mainland clubs and beaten only by a local
Queensland club. And amongst our members is Australia’s top ranked
elite, and 6 times World Championships competitor, Grace Crane.
our good results, Australopers has always prided itself on being a club
which values the fun and social side of orienteering. We have always
seen ourselves as being a family orientated club which looks after our
members and ensures newcomers are welcomed.
It is a pleasure to be associated with such a great club and a great bunch of people.
President, Australopers Orienteering Club
