Hi Stephen,

I am just going through the same thing for another organisation here in Vic.

We are considering incorporation - in Vic that seems a not too hard or 
expensive process. No idea how easy it is in ACT, though.

Another option is to regregister under .asn.au - apparently they allow 
unincorporated bodies (according to my domain name vendor).

For my particular organisaiton we also have the option of moving our 
domain under another .org.au that belongs to a related organisaiton that 
is incorporated.
