If you already have a boarding pass for your domestic flight, you would just have to drop you bag off after customs. Two hours should be ok, however I have never had good luck coming in to Melbourne, with my bag always taking a long time to arrive on the belt, and the queue for customs is long when all the morning flights arrive close together. I'd allow an hour between arriving and getting out of customs.
Having said that, you will be fine, since both flights are Qantas flights. You should receive your domestic boarding pass at LAX and therefore Qantas will accommodate you on the next flight if you don't make it in time for your domestic flight.

MEL is easy to transit even though it's split into 4 terminals. Terminals 1/2/3 are all in the one building after you have cleared immigration and customs recheck your bag proceed to departures level your flight to Sydney departs from T1.

I won't be checking bags so that will save me some time as well.

MEL is the only major Australian gateway that has international and domestic under one roof. a major advantage for transferring pax.

There is a train between the brisbane domestic and international terminal, however over one month ago the transfer options at bne changed.
There is now a complimentary bus transfer between the two terminals called the "t bus", i've not used it but have seen it at the terminal, you just need to head downstairs near baggage claim and follow the signs to just outside.
You may be able to use the train at a fee, but i'm not sure as our new PA's say that the train is for travel to brisbane and the gold coast.
1.45hr is tight, but should be achievable with no luggage, especially if you can get your boarding pass beforehand with web checkin or collecting it in melbourne.
All the best.
