The first photo looks to be a Crematogaster queen. 

 

The second photo looks to be a Solenopsis queen, possibly Solenopsis xyloni.

 

Considering the quality of those photos and the fact that you did not supply any measurements, I can't really identify those ants properly.

 

Next time, please follow the correct ID template and embed your photos. It's really not that complicated.

 

We're not trying to give you a hard time by asking you to do these things, we ask you so we can do the best job possible to help you.

Solenopsis xyloni (to my knowledge) are not found anywhere near Australia.

orange one looks like solenopsis. the second one is hard, as the picture looks like a male but the shape in the background of the first photo looks like a queen and the head is too large.
