I have tried the BA and Qantas lounges before. Qantas lounge wins, hands down. (For me at least.)

You also have access to the EK lounge. Since you have 6h to kill why not visit all three - QF, BA and EK?

Hard to go past the QF lounge for mine.

Qantas, by the longest of long shots. Great meals, including freshly-cooked plates of the day – great bar and drinks and bartender ('Ronaldo' is a rock star among frequent flyers, try his espresso martini) – and great staff in general!

As most people have said, the Qantas lounge wins hands down for food and beverages. Absolutely no question...
That being said, I will often eat at Qantas and then shift to the nearby BA lounge, because it is a far more quiet and intimate space. The popular Qantas lounge is quite voluminous and can be a little like a cattle pen during busy hours, whereas I have found the BA lounge to typically be attended by softly spoken British families... a great place to get some work done, or read a book.
Alternately, as recently written up on AusBT today, you could buy a 1hr pool pass at the Aerotel aiside hotel in Terminal 1 and have a relaxing splash around in the pool.
That being said; why not use your six hour layover to experience them all! Including the disappointing Emirates lounge, to which you are also entitled entry... :-)
FYI here's the AusBT link for the Aerotel article:
A pool pass will set you back USD12 for an hour. Having a swim is a pretty cool way to kill some time at an airport!

Food at the QF lounge then head to the BA lounge. Although I have to say the QF offerings are getting a bit too predictable.
I'm going to urge the mob not to lynch me until they've actually been there and notice that things don't change that much.
The apex of first world problem huh TRB haha
It's sad, but I gotta confess...
After a long work trip or transit, eating a ricey beef goulash with cutlery while hunched over a shin-height table is sometimes beyond my energy levels.
I like the little pizzas and party pies in the BA lounge... Y'know? Sometimes it's just nice to have hot, simple, familiar comfort food...

I was in the QF Changi lounge recently and it was fantastic, the food and service was first class and the Showers top notch
Looking forward to returning there next week
