At least some of them can be converted with shp2osm[0]. I converted  
the World Heritage Area file on my machine, and just uploaded one of  
the areas[1]. Does it look okay to people? If so, I'll go ahead and do  
the rest of the WHA data.

I also added a note to the new data.australia.gov.au wiki page[2] that  
Hugh created.
