has it done it all the time?

someone with an AU should be able to confirm it does it all the time, just to let you know how far you have to go.

Can also be due to airbag warning.

Also sometimes I have seen the speedo not quite sit on Zero ... and when the handbrake is engaged (and in Park) ... it will beep ... as the car is sensing forward movement from the speedo ... but with handbrake engaged.

usually a faulty speedo gear in the auto.

Mine did it ... and stopped when I had the auto replaced. Also was getting a faulty code for the speedo gear as well.
