What is Wikimedia Australia?

Wikimedia Australia, a non-profit incorporated association, is the local membership-driven Wikimedia chapter. You can join us!

Our aim is to promote equality of opportunity to access and participate in the collaborative creation of Free Cultural Works, especially educational works, and works about Australia, its culture, natural environment, and Australian news and media. See our Statement of Purpose & Rules. We support the charitable activities of the Wikimedia Foundation, however we do not have control over their projects, including Wikipedia.
