* I don't think Qld Police Stations have been imported.. at least not in their entirety, as I found one recently at Augenthella that wasn't mapped.
* Qld Nat Parks etc data source and import is documented on the wiki at: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Australia/Queensland/The_Department_of_Environment_and_Resource_Management/Protected_Areas_Import
