How big is your heated greenhouse?

Without one of those you won't get any papayas.

The best fruiting papaya for Melbourne is babaco I have tried it myself in Melbourne and they thrived. The tropical papayas are harder to maintain in Melbourne. If you don't have a greenhouse plant them in big pots so you can bring them to your garage or house for shelter. Without protection and proper micro climate they will surely perish during winter and early spring. Your best bet is the dwarf variety so can carry and protect them easily. It's hard work though but if you are determined to have a go why not.

Will a Red Papaya grow in Melbourne without a greenhouse. I don't care if it produces fruit or not, just want it for the foliage.
