Bass are Found mainly inland of The Coastal Rivers in NSW however they also like The Brackish water.
They have also been stocked in many Dams & Lakes in NSW & QLD.
Murray Cod are found also in many of The Lakes & Dams as well as many of The River Systems again in NSW & QLD.

Those Australian cod look like some bruisers.

The Australian bass look like larger, fatter white perch (with some more green).

I did a trip out north west for cod. Only got small ones on fly but they are a pretty cool fish.

I was curious about this and consulted the infallible wikipedia.

Looks like they are a species of temperate bass (the Morone family), and you are right in seeing a link to white perch as they are in that family, too along with white bass, striped bass, yellow bass, etc.
