Have a look at the following web site, https://journeybeyondrail.com.au these are the operators of the trains to the destinations you require.
Indian Pacific Sydney to Adelaide 
Overland Adelaide to Melbourne.
not sure of the Melbourne to Sydney..

XPTS run overnight between Sydney and Melbourne and reverse plus up to Brisbane , no sleepers ,, time keeping is very good , leave Melb at 7.30 pm and into Sydney Central Station at 7 am. , same times going other direction. I have down a trip on XPT between Sydney and Melbourne and back recently , being a railfan i did not sleep much sitting up , there is long term drought affecting NSW and QLD , water is precious , Sydney has iust gone to more stricter household water restrictions . Grain is being railed from SA to NSW , so on that overnight trip i checked out grain trains at Junee , Cootamundra and Golbourn. , PN grain trains were noted at those locations . My city , Tamworth , NSW , 80, 000.pop , could run out of drinking water if no big rainfall happens in he near future., dam here is down to 20% capacity , the city has some underground water supplies as well. Travel in Sept or April/May. Over 40c here every day next week. 
Regards
Graham.  .
