Linux Australia is the peak body for Open Source communities in Australia. Linux Australia represents Australian users and developers of Free Software and Open Technologies, and facilitates internationally-renowned events including linux.conf.au -- Australasia's grassroots Free and Open Source Software Conference.
As the fiscal and legal sponsor of DrupalSouth, Linux Australia provides accounting resources, bank accounts and insurance certificates. Any surplus funds generated by the event are returned to Linux Australia to continue to invest in Australia's open source community. Linux Australia also supports Wordcamp, Joomla! Day, PyConAU, Barcamps, and Software Freedom Day as well as Drupal Downunder 2011 & 2012, Drupal South Wellington 2014, DrupalGov 2013 & 2014 and the recent Sydney DrupalCamp through their grants and sub committee programs.
