Are you refering to the PSMA Admin Boundaries Data?

Referring to http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Import/ODbL_Compatibility

CC-BY-4.0 isn't compatible with the requirements for including data
into OSM as it stands, but if the rights holder(s) explicitly states
in writing that credit on the Contributors page is sufficient to
fulfill attribution requirements including downstream use in works
derived from OSM, then it can be included. Honestly I'm not sure if
this is covered by
and I'm not sure if the "Users must only use the data in ways that are
consistent with the Australian Privacy Principles issued under the
Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).", the latter did come up when including in
GNAF in OpenAddresses.io I think.  Maybe best to ask on the legal-talk
