Australian Schools

It would be good to have an authoritive source for all schools in Australia. http://www.myschool.edu.au/ might be a good place to start. In particular, the contact details and location of schools would be great. I've lost count the number of projects I've been involved in where the list of schools have been created from user input or manually created. A unique code of a school would significantly improve ease of reporting.

    These lists are informative, but would benefit from some location elements to enable more complex and informative research and analysis. For example, location information for each school would enable pedestrian walkability analysis to occur to examine street connectivity and potential walking catchments.

    Is it possible to get coordinates or addresses for each of these schools along with the name and postcode?
