Hi Roger, 

You will get conflicting advice as there are no set rules ( just as for the American states).

It's normally determined by what sounds best -

So I would say -

en Tasmanie 

dans le Queensland 

dans le New South Wales

dans le Territoire ...

but 

À Victoria ( Dans le Territoire / l'état de Victoria) 

It's often useful to search for French holiday sites to these places.

Bonne Continuation!
