boundary=state_forest, and similar? They all have it in the name as well, although that's obviously not ideal if you actually want to render them differently.

I've put a small (~110kb) .osm file up at  http://www.sunsetutopia.com/qld_parks_ready.osm.bz2 which contains the results of tagging and merging together the park sections (where they're split in the original data). Magnetic Island is the most complicated one I've done so far.
