I just took another look at the transformation tool 
and the spreadsheet is giving out the AMG lat long not MGA.
I entered the lat long that the tool states is MGA into g'sat imagery and 
presto, mark straight on top of bbq!

I will have a bit more of a play with the spreadsheet, but I think it may be a 
two step process, from ACT->AMG->MGA(WGS84)
