I managed to extract Vic.osm from Australia.osm using Osmosis with the
Qgis polygon plugin.

I install Osmosis in Mac OS X 10.6.x using Homebrew.

Now, OSM to Spatialite. I got this error, i.e. parser error.

localhost:bin root# spatialite_osm_map -o Vic.osm -d Vic.sqlite
SQLite version: 3.7.5
SpatiaLite version: 2.4.0-RC5

Parse error at line 872757:
unclosed token
localhost:bin root#

However, the Vic.sqlite - broken one gives me glimpse on the database
structure of Australia OSM data.

I am interested on POI.

Probably the best way to get the Victoria data is thru
Australia.sqlite (from Australia.osm) which really bid 2.4 Gb. QGIS is
shocking, it renders after few minutes.
