With the discovery of the AE1 and the Sydney a few years ago, I think that is all RAN ships accounted for?

Not sure Armidale, Nestor, Vampire, Parramatta or Yarra, at least,  from WW2 have been physically located; but exactly what happened to cause their loss is well known so it depends on what is meant by “accounted for”.

My prediction for 2018:

War grave smashed up by scrap merchants/souvenir seekers with anchors.
