Just booked SYD/MEL/CHC/BNE/SYD for $1617 for Queen's B'day.. had a scare there though.. got to the checkout but tried to see if one of the SYD/MEL flights were operated by an A330, but when I searched again, the fare went to ~$2600... thankfully QF had already generated a PNR and held the price!

Nice work! Are you in and out on the same morning? I can't force Qantas to let me book a similar intinerary for a different weekend where I don't have the luxury of a spare day.

Wait till Monday - see if there's a sale...first class on EK Metal, QF No. but from AKL to SYD/MEL/BNE return....should be about $1800/1900.  240SC, 480 with the double SC offer. Business would be about 1300 return and net 320 with the double. I rarely see specials going AU to NZ return though. 
That's actually a pretty common sale at around $1100 return in J. Doubt it'll crop up during the double SC promo though.

AFF has a massive, and I do mean massive, thread on QF status runs

Those prices are close to the current one way fares - not return.

Outbound on Friday Jun 9, return Monday Jun 12. I've booked another set of internal flights between CHC/WLG on NZ so I'll spend 2 days there. It's like the worst possible route you can take to get to WLG, via MEL and CHC :P

Does anyone know whether Qantas allows two consecutive years of booking flights with double status credits ? I booked April 2016 business class Melbourne to New York return, and went from bronze to gold. I didn't think I'd be able to earn another year of gold with another run at double status credits ?

There's nothing in the T&Cs of the promotion to that effect so I don't see why not. They obviously want your money :) so as long as you book an eligible flight and travel within the date range specified then you should be fine.

Is the vibe that EK metal on QF flight numbers (eg MEL-DXB) won't earn x2 on the promotion just gone?

I booked it (as part of a trip onwards to LHR) and am regretting splitting it up. Should have gone for the MEL-LHR flight...
