The history of IPv6 development in Australia is closely related to series of initiatives spearheaded by the principals of IPv6Now in the earlier years of this century. But linkrot happens, organisations change, domain names are lost, and almost all of those significant events are no longer available on the Internet, except at the Wayback Machine.
Many of these activities took place under the auspices of the original Internet Society of Australia, ISOC-AU, founded in November 1996 as the Australian chapter of the global Internet Society. ISOC-AU was rebranded as Internet Australia in 2015, and all of the two previous decade's records of submissions, conferences and activities — even the original domain name, isoc-au.org.au — were lost.
As a contribution to the IPv6 technical community, and as a prime mover in the development of IPv6 in Australia, IPv6Now has assembled much of that content related to IPv6, and presents it here.
