Depends, some company's might lease or rent a radio system so hard to search ACMA database. Otherwise try searching some licensee details I can find the link later if you can't.

Many transport companies use MPT trunking ~415MHz. They don't use their own frequencies and share channels. It's a bit of a challenge to listen - you'll need a trunk tracker that supports MPT trunking (rare), or a SDR TV dongle and some software to glue it all together or you could scan the band to find the active channels in your area, add them to a scan bank and just listen to whatever traffic appears.
