About AUSOM

AUSOM (pronounced ‘awesome’) is Australia’s largest and most active Apple User Group, with a 35-year history.

Formed in 1979, the Apple Users’ Society of Melbourne (now named simply AUSOM) is easily the largest and most active Apple User Group in Australia, and following the demise or fragmentation of the larger US groups, now stands as one of the largest in the world, with a paid membership of close to 600, despite the advent and growth of the Internet.

AUSOM exists under relevant Australian regulations as an Incorporated Association – hence ‘AUSOM Inc.’ It is a not-for-profit organization run almost entirely by volunteers.

It provides a wide variety of services for our members.

Get among knowledgeable friends!

Your Apple Mac is the most versatile, easy to use computer available, but how can you explore its full potential? The Internet is great for getting help, but not if you don’t know where to start looking. AUSOM provides you with contacts and information sources that can provide help in a way that’s so much more personal and interactive than struggling with the Web. Other Apple devices like the iPhone, iPad and iPod are also covered in our activities.
