Did they have roots on them or were they suckers from someone else's banana plants? I have found that they can virtually disappear and look dead then a green shoot comes up when you least expect it. Maybe it got too cold to plant them out, November is probably the best time of year to transplant suckers. But don't give up until there is just a hole in the ground where you planted them.

Frank, your location wouldn't be helping much either, western Sydney has been very cold so far this winter. I'm on the coast, just north of sydney and we have experienced tremps as low as 3C. If you have had a frost or 2 by now, that will knock them out. If you're lucky, the corm underground will probably still have life, so I'd leave all the dead material on and around the corm and wait it out till you see new growth in spring.
