There appears to be some good data in the list. It is commendable that the
Victorian Government has released some of its data under the CC license.
Some of the datasets are pretty course (VicMap Lite for example) and are
probably not worth looking at. On the other hand, the public places
(libraries, swimming pools etc) are probably of higher accuracy.
Have started a page on the wiki (
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Data.vic.gov.au) to list data sets that
are worth/have been loaded into OSM.


On Friday the App My State Victoria competition for Victorian
> residents to "build mobile and web applications that will benefit
> Victorians." opened (
> http://www.premier.vic.gov.au/app-my-state/prizes-and-categories.html
> )
> However this also lead to the release of many datasets for use in the
> competition @ http://data.vic.gov.au/
> This includes several transport datasets (Bus/Tram/Train Stops, Train
> Stations, Railway Lines) as well as POIs (courts, hospitals, fire
> stations MFB and CFA, prisons, university/tafe locations, etc.) and
> ways (Lakes, Rivers, Island outlines, Towns, Urban Areas, LGAs,
> Postcodes, Highways and Class 3 Roads)
