(bit to use for govhack.org)
The CSIRO Data Access Portal data.csiro.au provides access to data published by CSIRO across a range of disciplines (User Guide, catalog API). It gives access to CC-BY and CSIRO Data License datasets.
The main access page https://data.csiro.au/dap/home?execution=e1s1

There is a spatial search feature: https://data.csiro.au/dap/searchByLocation


The help pages are located on a separate wiki https://wiki.csiro.au/confluence/display/dmsdoc/Find+Data (and so is the CSIRO Data License which is relatively hard to find - not indexed by Google)

There is an API which can be used to access the catalog content https://wiki.csiro.au/display/dmsdoc/Web+Services+Interface

And here is a list of CC-BY Datasets hosted on the portal:
  • Modelled seabed response to possible climate change scenarios over the next 50 years in the Australian Northeast/North/Northwest - 9 datasets
  • RV Franklin 2/88 Post Cruise Project Data
  • Multi-resolution Ridge Top Flatness (MrRTF, 3" resolution), Multi-resolution Valley Bottom Flatness (MrVBF, 3" resolution) - 2 datasets
  • Satellite ASTER Geoscience Map of Australia
  • Atlas of Australian Acid Sulphate Soils
  • Global Bemisia dataset release version 31 Dec 2012
  • WAMSI Nodes - 5 datasets
  • Median of Percent Slope over 300 m (3" resolution) derived from 1" SRTM DEM-S, Contributing Area - Multiple Flow Direction (Partial) (3" resolution) derived from 1" SRTM DEM-H
  • Two-Rocks moorings data 2004 - 2005
  • Droughty Hill Wind Readings - Tasmanian Earth Resources Satellite Station (1995 -2011)
  • Murray-Darling Basin Sustainable Yields Modelling Catchments and Regions - 2 datasets

Databib is a searchable catalog / registry / directory / bibliography of research data repositories http://databib.org/search_results.php?query=australia&Submit=Find Includes data sources which have a relatively complicated data access protocol like BioGrid Australia http://www.biogrid.org.au/wps/portal/biogridwcm/?WCM_GLOBAL_CONTEXT=/wps/wcm/connect/biogrid+australia/biogrid+australia/Data/How+to+access+Data/
