If you can try for the economy section of the upper deck. Its at the back behind the Prem Economy section and the side seats are only 2 people not 2.

Yes I would definitely recommend Upper Deck Economy. 

32A/K is great.

The upstairs section is usually only available for Platinum (not sure about Gold) at time of booking.

As far forward as possible, as the rear of the lower deck has the snack bar and bathrooms which attract a lot of traffic.

Towards the front of downstairs is also faster to exit the aircraft, compared with Upstairs. Seatguru . com may give you other seat selection tips.

would anyone happen to know where the babies and small children are placed automatically on the flight. Like are they all downstairs at the very front, or (sterotypically) at the very back, downstairs.

The QF A380 seatmap shows bassinets in the forward economy section (Row 52) and the rear economy section (Row 81). The middle economy section appears bassinet free (Rows 66-77)
