I found the tram models at the Legoland Discovery Centre at Chadstone, the other trains are the work of Melbourne L-Gauge Train Club members who exhibit at the annual Brickvention display.

The straddle carrier and gantry crane model was at the Level Crossing Removal Authority’s Murrumbeena Info Hub (closed in 2018) while the Queensland models were at the Workshops Rail Museum in Ipswich.
