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”.

In the context of the thread subject, it is determining the actual location of the wreckage with positive confirmation via photos of distinguishing characteristics that is being discussed.

My prediction for 2018:
