Rocketry in Australia is flourishing and with good reason, it is an incredible hobby to become involved in. Regardless of age or experience getting started is easy and there are numerous rocketry clubs and organisations across Australia eager to attract new members and grow their local clubs.
Club based rocketry really is the way to go. You will likely find that your local club will welcome visitors so don’t be afraid to rock up and take a look.
Below are links to some popular Australian rocketry resources. The forum at the Australian Rocketry website is highly recommended for its open diverse friendly atmosphere and is a great place to start your rocketry journey - regardless of where you might be located in Australia.
Most importantly, rocketry is supposed to be fun. So turn the Xbox off, get out in the fresh air and enjoy this awesome hobby with the whole family!
* Please note: Suburban Rocketry does not support the Australian Rocketry Association (ARA) in any shape or form. While we support the vision, goals and efforts of individual ARA members (majority of whom are exceptional people), we do not support this association or the direction the ARA has been taken by several of its senior members in the last few years. We at Suburban Rocketry want to see rocketry meet its full potential in Australia so that all are free to enjoy this incredible hobby. We do not believe this is currently possible under the existing management of the Australian Rocketry Association. We advise individuals to educate themselves on the history of this organisation (especially its management team), before financially choosing to support them with membership and/or sponsorship.
