Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In NSW, advocating a Bullet Train from Newcastle to Melbourne promptly, rather than a Bullet Train from Sydney to Canberra eventually, as proposed by the ALP government.

Bullet Train For Australia    Votes: 6,672 (0.21%), 1.46% of a quota.

In the 12th count, they received a distribution of 1,798 votes from the Building Australia Party

In the 20th count they received a distribution of 1,818 from the Senator Online Voting party that had originally flowed to the Stable Population Party.

In the 28th count, they were excluded, with their primary vote flowing to the Australian Democrats, their Building Austalia preferences flowing to No Climate Change Skeptics, and their preferences from Senate Online Voting flowing to the Animal Justice Party.

In the 36th count, when the Dems were excluded, their primary vote flowed to the Australian Motoring Enthusiasts Party.

In the 39th count, when AMEP was excluded, their primary vote flowed to the Sex Party

In the 43rd count, when the Sex Party was excluded, their primary vote flowed to the Shooters and Fishers.

Finally, on the 45th and final count in NSW, their primary vote flowed to the Green Parties, which lost to the Liberal candidate in the final count by 500,394 to 409,919.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
