The data in Mapconnect can be up to 8 years old.  It originally came from both CAPAD and the states/territories, and was generalised to be consistent with a cartographic map at a scale of 1:250,000.
CAPAD has come from the states / territories, and probably from the national park authorities rather than the mapping agency.  There will be differences.
I would also be keen to hear what the limitations in the CCBY licence is.  If you want to use the data in Mapconnect then I can chase up an alternative licence/permission to use if the current license doesn't work.
