Basically no unless you have explicit approval from Gold Coast Council.

It has more to do with osm user conditions than whether or not GCC 
licence is compatible.  It's the section that says something like "you 
own the data or have explicit permission to use it".

If the data licence was compatible and you received explicit approval 
from GCC then you could use this data.
