I agree, it is where I've concentrated my mapping.  Every now and
again I add to Melbourne using the yahoo imagery, but for me the
greatest use has been to map mountain bike trails and bush walks.
What I love is that I can add them to OSM and then upload the garmin
map version of the things that I've added back to the gps.  So next
time I'm back out that way there it all is ready to use on the gps,
and I hope that it will help others as well when they head out back

For me it certainly is my favourite part of osm.

Now you've inspired me to send some links to the bits I've contributed
to the map over the last year.

Lysterfield state mtb course in Melbourne

Werribee gorge walks west of Melbourne

The ride/walk up kozzie (hit 75kmph on the way back down on the tarmac, woohoo)

Glenrock state forest mtb trails in Newcastle

Anakie gorge west of Melbourne (the gorge itself was already done, I
just turned it into a loop)

Wombat mtb track north of Melbourne

Cavanga road mtb track in Bendigo
