As a +1 comment, I'd also like to note that in many places the ABS  
follow the sand->grass/tree/dirt line, rather than the high-tide line  
that natural=coastline is supposed to represent. If there is a place  
where the ABS data is a consistently a bit inland of the PGS data for  
a stretch, check if it's a beach.
