The file needs to be ordered for viewing.  I am unable to assist you as I don't live anywhere near Melbourne.

https://www.prov.vic.gov.au/explore-collection/explore-topic/wills-and-probates
*Records 1926-2015 can be ordered to view at North Melbourne.
*View the records in the Reading Room for free;
*OR, pay for a copy to be emailed to you or posted to you.

It appears there was no Will.
