Hi
I am interested in creating a HO scale recreation of the Kelly Gang siege at Glenrowan, My research tells me that a 28750 Victorian Railways Beyer Peacock Q class steam locomotive was used on the police train. They were built in the 1873 at the Phoenix Foundry as A 0-6-0 Tender  engine odd numbered 83-101. Would you be able to tell me where I could get one please

It depends on how accurately you wish to depict that locomotive, as you might be able to find a model that is close to it and modify it. Otherwise you are going to have to build it from scratch. British models may come close, but are in the wrong scale, being 00 scale rather than HO scale.

Broad Gauge Model made a Y class 0-6-0 loco that would be a better case for such a loco. But to find one, then have it built will cost you just under $1000 easy (kit,build,paint)

This is the prototype Y, it would give a close representation for your display, and if any details were too far away from your desired accuracy , you may need to place a tree, building, horse or something in the way to hide the problem.

I think the image may not show, just do a google for VR Y class steam loco.
