The first line of action is to manually remove as much as you can. Then try cutting off the fuel source. Remember it didn't start overnight and it wont go away over night.

can you grab ocean water in Australia? I mean some of the coral in my Canadian tank are from your neck of the woods…lol

I'd grab those big rocks out and scrub off the algea too, If you leave those big algae covered rocks they're just gonna spread it.

You don't need snails. Just keep up with the maintenance and cut back on feedings.

Your light schedule might be an issue too. Cut back on the hours your lights are on. That would help quite a bit.
