If it's legally usable, I think that'd be great. However, last I
looked, all of the GA data was quite restrictively licensed ... the one
you link to looks okay but I am no lawyer. Perhaps we could ask GA if
they mind if we incorporate it into openstreetmap?
I've already added the state boundaries for WA, NT, SA and parts of the
Qld/NSW/Vic borders to OSM, based on the textual description on the GA
web site. The first three are just lines of constant latitude/longitude,
so are easy :-) The others are along rivers. The ACT border is a bit
trickier. I'd like to see National Park boundaries in OSM too ...
