I responded to your original post on this topic in July. Don't know if you saw it but I have copied it for you below.
Good luck and have a great trip!
I have a friend who travels with children all the time and she will only fly Emirates as she says they are fantastic with children!
Have a look at the website - they have quite a bit of info - I have copied some info for you below.
You could also try calling the local office in Sydney:

On the ground
You can pre-book seats, children's meals or any other special meal, just let our Reservations team know and we will be pleased to make the arrangements. We offer a selection of meals, especially planned to appeal to the younger palate. You can request a special meal when you book your child's ticket or at least 24 hours prior to departure. There is a variety to choose from - food items like burgers, chicken/fish fingers, French fries, chocolate, fruit and crisps, all presented on a specially designed tray set-up. Special meals are available for vegetarians and specific dietary requirements as well.
Unaccompanied Minors and Young Passengers are always boarded before other passengers, so that the cabin crew can seat them and stow their hand baggage.
If your child is travelling on his/her birthday all you need to do is call our Reservations and we'll prepare a special cake as a gift to celebrate the event.
We will be also pleased to take a Polaroid photograph of children as a complimentary memento of their flight, where flight time permits.
In the air - a world of entertainment
Whenever you fly with Emirates, your child will find entertainment to suit them. There is a dedicated channel for our young passengers, CTV and Skysurfers. A selection of latest cartoons and family movies are available on this channel. Some of our flights also feature interactive games for all ages.
If your child is aged between two and 16 years and flies frequently, we have a Skywards Skysurfers club, where a member is entitled to special Skysurfers treatment in lots of different ways. For instance, if your child likes to sit next to a window on a flight, being a Skysurfers member helps ensure he/she gets a window seat on the next flight.
A Skywards Skysurfer also earns Skywards Miles for every flight flown, and these Miles can be exchanged for great rewards such as free flights, books, toys and free trips to the amazing Wild Wadi Water Park in Dubai.
There is a members-only website which has interesting things for your child, like e-cards, screensaver, Travel Quiz, Travel Journal and Mileage Calculator.
