I need just 3000 status credits to get to Qantas Lifetime Gold. Any suggestions on fast/cheap (as if) ways to get there in the next year or two? Ideas for itineraries or strategies ? (other than the periodic double SC promotions).

Earlier this year when the DSC offer came out there was also a discount flights to NZ. For $1026 you could snap up BNE-MEL-CHC return, yielding 560 SCs. So, for $5,130, you could get 2,800 SCs. That’s pretty close to to 3,000, so you could supplement it with another trip to NZ or do something else.

Maybe I have been getting the wrong info but I thought DSC offer doesn’t usually cover lifetime credit tabulation

If there is DSC and you actually need or want to fly/travel, then it is a great value.

If your normal travel pattern gives you Platinum, then you will be LTG in less than 3 years, enjoy the journey :-)
