But what can I do with this file
http://latuviitta.org/documents/inspire_au.xml with a schema
http://latuviitta.org/documents/inspire_au.xsd ?

It is in EPSG:3067 which in really an Easting-Northing system but the file has written as Northing-Easting as if it were EPSG:25835.  EPSG:3067 and 25835 are just the same ETRS89 / UTM zone 35N but the latter is officially Northing-Easting.
