About Us

Our goal is to encourage people to solve puzzles and to assist organisers with hosting WCA competitions

Speedcubing Australia is a not-for-profit, wholly volunteer-run organization dedicated to supporting the Australian speedcubing community.  Speedcubing is the act of solving twisty puzzles, such as the Rubik’s Cube®, as quickly as possible. 

Speedcubing Australia begun life in 2010 as the RMIT Rubik’s Cube Club.  Since that time, there have been over 130 competitions held in every Australian state and territory.  In July 2019 we hosted the very successful WCA World Championships in Melbourne.

The World Cube Association (WCA) recognises Speedcubing Australia as a regional organisation.  The WCA governs competitions for twisty puzzles, of which the most well known is the Rubik’s Cube® or the 3x3x3 Cube as it is officially called. There are currently 17 official WCA events – including big cubes up to 7x7x7, Blindfolded events and some events that are not even cubes such as the Pyraminx and Clock.

Speedcubing Australia runs competitions all over Australia but we need local organisers to help us out.  If you are interested in having a competition in your local area, contact us for further information.  Competitions are open to anyone who can solve a cube, they are supportive and welcoming environments and are a great experience regardless of your age or ability.
