I'm on the north side of Sydney.

There is an Australian-based forum here

Some of the guys there are from the Adelaide area and at least one of them is getting into Arduino.

You could always check out the various hackerspaces around the country. I am a member of the one in Brisbane, HSBNE.

Melbourne Hackerspace Community and ATA play with Arduino, developing a fan controller to move warm air in a room to a cooler room.
Dunno if any clubs or groups are active in OZ

Anyone around Sydney?

I may be driving through Sydney in a month or so but normally I avoid the place :)

There is at least one bloke on AVRfreaks that comes from Sydney.

I'm from Sydney. We've got a really active hackspace here as well. I'm only just starting to get into Arduino, but a lot of the people at the space have been into it for quite a while. There's also a really active hackspace in Canberra.

The one in Sydney is called Robots and Dinosaurs.

Cool, I'd love to drop into the Sydney Hacker Space some time!
