An excellent document. Well done. When I started reading it I was going
to comment that incorporation should be mentioned in the first sentence

"Wikimedia Australia is a non-profit organisation, incorporated in
Victoria and recognised by the Wikimedia Foundation as an official

but then I found that incorporation is covered in detail near the end.
It still might be a good idea to mention it in the first sentence.
