Yep, after reading on this list that Osmarender needs a node every few kms
I started putting them in. I've done from the coast to the NT border so

fortunately it was delayed long enough for me to get the nodes in, so a
lot of it is rendered.

I also did a few lowzooms to pick up the borders, which seem to have come
out ok.
