If you feel comfortable that you can edit similar to how everyone else
is mapping in Australia there is no reason you shouldn't fix issues
you find. There is a wiki page specificly written to help guide people
when mapping in Australia:

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Australian_Tagging_Guidelines

The NearMap imagery is as good or better than most GPS traces in terms
of accuracy, it has the added advantage of infinite points in curves
etc.
