I was hoping someone may have some information on what to expect on lunch and dinner time flights in Qantas economy at the moment, specifically on flights under 2.5 hours? Some future flights I have booked both say "Refreshment", even though they're a 12:35pm and 6:55pm departure. Thanks in advance.

According to the Qantas site:
"If your flight duration is less than three and a half hours, you'll be offered a snack and a complimentary drink suitable to the time of day of your flight.
If your flight duration is more than three and a half hours, you'll be offered a hot meal and a complimentary drink suitable to the time of day of your flight.
A limited selection of pre-ordered Dietary Required Meals (special meals) are available on flights more than three and a half hours, as outlined below. Contact your local Qantas office if you require a dietary meal to be added to your booking. "

it is unusual.I recall in the old days the meals corresponded with time of day.now nothing.you are better off having something in terminal if available or buying something from subway or a deli(roll/sub)plus drinks and take on plane with you.

Flying back from Melbourne to Brisbane at dinner time 2 weeks ago we got a hot mushroom veloute and roasted vegetate tart. Despite the small size it was quite delicious and with the complimentary red wine it was more then sufficient for the flight
