Payphones. A lifeline for when everything has been taken from you, or you just can't afford to keep your pay-as-you-go in the black. Telstra already makes available a search interface for the locations of payphones (https://www.telstra.com.au/consumer-advice/payphones) but the dataset used is not directly accessible. The copyright of this data and Terms of Service for the search interface are unclear, but clearly public. ...more »
Anything of this sort available?
Currently, Taronga Zoo has details of shark attack incidents on their website, however I believe the incidents should be made publicly available as a CSV so data visualisations can be performed to help illustrate patterns in shark behaviour.
Speed limits joined to road spatial data
WA grain grower groups have a unique opportunity to host a fully operational automatic weather station and soil moisture probe at no financial cost. The equipment will form part of five eDemonstration sites to be established throughout the Wheatbelt as part of the Department of Agriculture and Food’s (DAFWA) eConnected Grainbelt project, made possible by Royalties for Regions. The weather stations and soil moisture probes ...more »
A shapefile or list of the locations of Payphones across Australia.
Currently you can view only 10 at a time on their Locator webpage.
The location of Telephone Exchanges would also be handy.

Carers working for government could complete profiles of themselves (much like a dating service) so that people employing or assigning carers could match skills, interests, personalities and backgrounds allowing for a more appropriate care and happier care workers.
We need access to list of public parking for cars available for citizens across Australia. The data set should contains details like - Address, parking rate, timing, parking limit and any additional information that is valid to the data set
I would like to see feeds for local council meetings that shows the voting patterns of councillors.
Public Transport data was previously made available for download in 2011 as an excel spreadsheet at http://data.gov.au/dataset/journey-planner-data-nt
I would like to see this updated and made available to app developers as a GTFS dataset under creative commons.
A water hydrant is used by fire fighters to access the water supply in the case of a fire.
Why are hydrants important?
During an emergency, including a bush or house fire, it is important to know where the water hydrant is located. Having clear access to a water hydrant may make a difference to how quickly an emergency can be brought under control.
Australia's various electoral commissions don't publish open election data, http://australia.census.okfn.org/dataset/election. In general it is not openly licensed, machine-readable or available in bulk.
During elections this data is often published in Election Markup Language via a media feed but later turned off.
I would like all electoral commissions to publish historic and real-time open election data.
'twould be good if I could fix typos in my own posts. For some reason, I can only see them after I click submit.
Maybe it's because the font in the form fields is less dense (lighter grey) than the normal page font. Or maybe [insert joke about me being more dense]...
ORIGIN OF THE UNIVERSE
The entire universe was originated by duplication and union of particles.
These particles come from the cold of the universe.
The temperature was solidified.

I invented the Propellant Warp.
Similar to the RSS feed available for ACT. It would be great to see the same Magistrates/Supreme court data available for other states.
Making the Qld NAPLAN scores available as open data for mapping using Google earth would enable increased use of the dataset by services such as public libraries which could use it to inform their practices and partnerships with other agencies towards shared goals of learning and literacy.
Beach Access and numbers for the Noosa Shire Council area
The development of cycling in Sydney is an important public issue, that has been covered numerous times in the media. Often, there is controversy about how many cyclists there are using cycleways etc. The only available data seems to be an excel spreadsheet, with processed data/calculations up to 2006, from a couple of key locations such as the harbour bridge. It would be great to make up-to-date information available ...more »
There is dataset for ACT and Gold Coast available, but would be great to have dataset including all public BBQ sites across all states (or alternatively one dataset per state).
I'm considering building a small hardware device as part of the GovHack 2014 that is designed to sit on your dashboard and let you know if your vehicle registration has or is about to expire. This is useful because all vehicles used on South Australian roads must have valid registration. If you use an unregistered vehicle on the road you may be committing an offence and may not be covered by a compulsory third party ...more »
The state and national road tolls provide a valuable real-time measure of incident rates involving motorised vehicles; something governments can use to set reduction targets directly against. I believe aggregated police report data allowing a similar 'toll' to be made freely available to the public/media would be invaluable in helping to reduce the prevalence of incidents involving cyclists and vehicles on public roads. ...more »
All car owners and users should possess a valid
compulsory insurance for al least third party liability
I'm not clear on the distinction between data.gov.au and data.nsw.gov.au. Searching on the latter for e.g. "cycling", results in a whole list of data sets that look relevant, but on closer inspection are from South Australia, Queensland, etc. On the one hand, I'm surprised that they appear on the NSW site. On the other, it would be good to at least tag that they don't relate to NSW data.
