Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

The wiki has a page http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Attribution/qld.data.gov.au_explicit_permission

where Jason Ward ascertained the licence that data.qld.gov.au uses for the data that they make available: Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Australia.

He comments he had only directly requested permission to use Department of Transport and Main Roads data, but was trying to obtain a general clearance of Qld government data through 2014. Does anyone know how that went? I have noticed a missing national park on OSM (actually Glen Rock State Forest), the boundaries of which are available under the same CCA licence, but a different department (Department of National Parks, Recreation, Sport and Racing).

The Queensland Government has recently released Queensland Globe http://www.dnrm.qld.gov.au/__data/assets/file/0020/100568/qldglobe.kml (http://globe.information.qld.gov.au/qldglobe/) which accesses many of these datasets.

The most obvious first question would be, have you tried contacting Jason Ward? Since he's the one that initiated the discussions, he's probably the most likely person to ask about further developments. His email address is on the attribution page you linked to.
