Hi Nyall,
  Yeah I'm quite interested to know more about this. I gather the
Spatial DataMart has been around a while, so is the difference that
they've published it on data.vic.gov.au and made it accessible to the
public? Or is it the licensing that has changed?

Might be worth having a meetup to discuss what we can do with all this data.
