If they are not going out of the airport transit lounge, they do NOT require a visa. However, they DO need to contact the ground staff of the connecting airline to get their baggage checked through to Australia.

Above information is correct, however if the same airline, they may pass your bags through without having to collect them, you will just have to confirm they are your bags as you board the aircraft, you should guide guidelines at checkin.
