Korean Air flies between Seoul and Tel Aviv, however I don't think they operate any flights between Seoul and Melbourne now. None of the ME3 carriers fly to Israel for what I assume to be geopolitical reasons. Perhaps your best bet would be to catch CX to Hong Kong, then fly El Al from Hong Kong to Tel Aviv. Depends on how many stops you want and how long the layovers are going to be.

MEL/BKK with TH then BKK/TLV with LY. Can't imagine it would be the most comfortable way to get there but it would be the quickest. Although I should imagine you'd feel super secure on that last leg, what with pax profiling, air marshals and aircraft with anti-missile technology.

If flying in J, most aircraft of El Al have sloping sleepers for their seats, they do not recline to a fully flat bed parallel to the floorl.  If this is important to you, take a look into the combination fares from LH/LX/OS.  This means you'll flying QF/SQ/CX/TG to SIN/BKK/HKG/etc and then connect through FRA/MUC/VIE/ZRH.  It's an extra stop on your journey but may be better connections than what has been mentioned already and more than likely a better hard product.

If you're not keen on flying El Al, you can fly Royal Jordanian. Their 787 has far better seats than their older A330.

MH148 MEL-KUL, RJ185 KUL-AMM, RJ342 AMM-TLV.

Thanks a lot.

Just noticed Qantas website does not allow online booking for the route - why is that? It says to ring them

You can use skyscanner.com.au to find the best fare for the airlines you want to use and if Qantas is one of them they might match the price or Flight Centre usually beat the price by $1.
