This is the home page for the Official Australian Ubuntu Local Community Team. We also exist on Launchpad.


The Australian team focuses on distributing, advertising and demonstrating Ubuntu within Australia. Through the development of our projects we focus on the areas of schools, business and home users.

The Ubuntu Australian Team is currently developing a few key projects to help promote and raise awareness of Ubuntu in Australia.

Key projects that are currently being developed include:

  • Ubuntu-In-Homes
  • Ubuntu-In-Schools
  • Ubuntu-In-Business
  • Ubuntu-In-Not-for-Profit

Ubuntu Friendly Notebooks - a guide to purchasing Ubuntu Friendly Notebooks in Australia.

For further information on these projects please see the Projects page.


The current ubuntu-au logo was decided upon at the April 4 meeting. Designs, submissions and thoughts for the logo can be viewed on the Logo page. Logo #7 was chosen as the official Ubuntu-au logo.

Local CD distribution

APC Magazine (August edition) has Ubuntu 6.06 LTS on its DVD-ROM \o/ .

It works exactly like the Dapper Desktop CD - Live Environment with GUI installer. A DVD reader is required though (of course).

Customising Ubuntu

Our Customisation page describes ways to customise Ubuntu for Australian conditions. Also see our local apt mirrors page - LocalAptMirrors
