When I flew SYD/PER both ways on VA last year, there was only one gazetted meal service. You can have snacks any time you like by selecting from the Y menu, but you need to ask for it - it is not proactively offered, nor is it indicated on the J menu.
As far as I can tell on PER routes operated by QF, only one meal service is offered as well. Been that way that I can remember since 2007. Can't see why it's a "cost cut" now when I don't believe it's been any different to before.
The main exception for both airlines is, of course, the red-eye ex-PER, which usually consists of one short supper and a continental breakfast. That's the only case I can think of where two gazetted meal offerings are provided.
For a 4-5 hour flight, I think this is sufficient. Having flown many other 4-5 hour flights apart from Australian trans-cons, they are typically only 1 meal service flights, too.
Not like anyone needs to eat twice on a 3-ish hour flight anyway, but the DJ supper service is very abbreviated (just a sandwich and a small cake) and is finished in half hour easily. After that you go to sleep for 2 hours and get woken up in the last 45 minutes for the continental breakfast, which is a hot muesli, some pastries and fruit.
