According to the comments on the article itself, apparently not.

According to some website

The first A380 to visit Perth was a special promotional (non-revenue) flight by Qantas’ A380 VH-OQA on 14 October 2008.  A further six A380s have visited since then, but only because of medical emergency diversions – five of these from Emirates (A6-EDE, A6-EDA, A6-EEH, A6-EEO, A6-EDP) and one from Qantas (VH-OQB) plus the one which landed recently due to a medical emergency.
