We have moved to oii.org.au
By Admin on 15 January 2013.

Our website address is now oii.org.au, which we feel better reflects our status as an Australian not-for-profit and charitable organisation.

You can continue to reach us via oiiaustralia.com, or oiiaustralia.org, but you’ll avoid redirection time if you update your bookmarks!

A good selection of our links have been tested, but please let us know if you discover any strangeness.
