Hi, I have a multileg itinerary coming up. All flights have a turkish airlines flight number on the ticket, but the first flight is actually malaysian airlines (syd to kul). All legs are in business class and i have gold status with qantas.
1. Will i have access to the qantas business class lounge in sydney (given the malaysian airlines is another one world airline, or will this be denied as my ticket has a turkish airlines number, and turkish is star alliance).
2. Will i be able to earn either qantas points or status credits on the maylaysian airlines flight?

As you are travelling J Class, I would think you would access whatever lounge the MH check-in staff direct you to. This may not necessarily be the Qantas Lounge.
You will not be able to earn QF points or status credits on the MH sector as your ticket shows an TK flight number. (The QF status credits earned when flying MH are pretty pathetic anyway.)

Lounge access: If your flights are all ticketed with Turkish Airlines (Star Alliance) flight numbers, then you can access fellow Star Alliance airlines Air New Zealand and Singapore Airlines lounges, but not the QANTAS lounge which is OneWorld Alliance. It doesn't matter what airline you're actually flying (in your case Malaysia Airlines). What matters is the airline code that forms the front part of your flight number.
Points: No. QANTAS does not form any part of your ticketed itinerary. So you will not earn QANTAS points and status credits despite flying Malaysian Airlines on your first leg.

You're lucky, the SQ and NZ lounges are much better overall than QF Bus lounge.

It shows your shallow understanding of how codeshares and alliances work. Every service and benefit flows from which airline he purchased his tkt from. Now please educate yourself (maybe actually fly?) before you squeak to adults.
