The QF webpage pretty much has this covered:

Transfer Information

Transits

If you are transiting through Dubai, you will need to take all your carry-on baggage with you when you disembark your Qantas flight. You can then proceed through Security and directly to your departure gate. Upon arrival at your departure gate, you will be required to handover any liquids, aerosols or gels (LAGS) that exceed 100ml, including any alcohol or fragrances purchased Duty Free in Australia or London. Details of your departure gate and boarding time will be available on flight information screens located throughout the airport. Please ensure you leave sufficient time to get to your departure gate and note that Terminal 3 is a silent terminal.

Transfer between flights

Whilst Qantas operates from Concourse A, if you are transferring onto an Emirates flight it could depart from and arrive into any of the three concourses (A, B or C) in Terminal 3.

To transfer, follow the 'Connections' signage located throughout the Concourse. If you are holding a boarding pass for your onward flight, then follow the 'Passengers with Boarding Pass' signs, and proceed through Security and on to your departure gate. First customers and Platinum Frequent Flyers can proceed to the Emirates First Lounge, and Business customers, Gold Frequent Flyers and Qantas Club members can proceed to the Emirates Business Lounge. If you are not holding a boarding pass for your onward flight, follow the 'Passengers without Boarding Pass' signs and proceed to the Connections Desk where your boarding pass will be issued. You may then proceed through Security.

Transfer trains are available between Concourses A and B should you need to commute between the two to your departure gate. Concourses B and C are connected by a pedestrian route. Details of your departure gate and boarding time will be available on flight information screens located throughout the airport. Please ensure you leave sufficient time to get to your departure gate and note that Terminal 3 is a silent terminal.

Transfer between terminals

You can easily walk between Terminal 1 and Terminal 3 when transferring between flights. The walk should not take more than 20 minutes, and there are travelators and escalators to assist you.

Dubai International offers 24-hour inter-terminal shuttle bus service solely for passengers transferring airside between Terminals 1, 2 and 3.

Upon exiting Dubai International, you can also take the Metro to shuttle between Terminal 1 and Terminal 3.
