Good timing!

Financial regulations have recently changed in Australia, to make
crowdfunding legally possible for small businesses and non-profits,
effective 29 September 2017 - though I don't know if crowdfunding by
individuals in Australia has ever been legally constrained.


Here is also a very informative news article, with some useful "related
articles" below: 

ReadyFundGo is an Australia-based crowdfunder. Here is their information 
on the legislative change, and from here, there are links to how you get 
started: https://readyfundgo.com/crowdfunding-equity-aus/

Good luck with your project! - Aleta
