A brief history of our club

The Orchard Sun Club was established in 1974. Naturist clubs had exissted in Dunedin for a long number of years before the OSC was formed by members of an existing club who wished to own their grounds. These members found grounds in Green Island, a suburb of Dunedin, and spent many months establishing games courts, swimming pool, etc. Unfortunately, a major landslide wiped out all this work, and the members had to begin again. Through their efforts, much of what had been before was re-established only to have vandals destroy buildings and facilities. The decision was made to re-locate further from the city and, in 1988, the Club purchased land near Middlemarch, about 1 hour’s drive away from Dunedin, where we are now based.
