Suggest you call the NRMA for them to check it. Good luck.

NRMA No Real Mechanic Available.....:idea:
sounds like it may have lost rpm signal ( crank angle sensor )

So either no spark, weak spark, no fuel or serious computer issues.
Can you smell fuel when cranking ?
What happened last time car was driven ?
Check / swap fuel pump relay and engine relay, ignition coil relay...

Also check the throttle body butterfly moves freely. I read in a recent thread a stuck butterfly would prevent the car from starting without throwing any code.
