Just wondering if anyone could give a few options please.

My brother died last year intestate in Brisbane without a spouse or children. I working with the Public Trust Australia to get a probate from the Queensland Supreme Court.

Once I get the probate how do I find out details about his superannuation, bank account details, life insurances etc. I have no idea with which bank his accounts are, his insurance policies etc.
Is there a single department in Australia I can contact to get all this info?
Also, is there a way I can find out if his Superannuation funds had some sort of death insurance etc linked to it.

Regards
Sam
