Maybe Yellow-spotted Monitors? Was about 120 cm long! Goannas (family Varanidae, known as monitor lizards in other countries) are well represented in Australia (approximately 25 species) and 19 species are found in Queensland.

Hello. Are these different individuals, taken at different places or different times? If so each individual should be put in a separate spotting, even if they are the same species. :-)

I'd say that's what it is. The only other thing might be a Sand Goanna, but I'd go with the Yellow-spotted.
