Two hours is a bit tighter than ideal for going through immigration, collecting your bags and going back up through checking again – especially when the immigration queues can be killers. It's do-able, but I think you won't enjoy the transit at all because your mind will be on the clock. Is it possible you can travel with carry-on bags only? If so, at least that'll shave some time off the process as the EVA desk at the main E or W transit areas should be able to issue you a boarding pass.

Qantas only codeshare with China Airlines on flights to/from Aus. You would be better off booking a Cathay Flight and hope the check in agent on the day is having a good day and through checks your luggage as Cathay and Qf are both part of the Oneworld alliance.

You may wish to look at when check-in closes for your next flight. I got caught by 2 minutes on a 2.5 hour turn-around in JFK last year because the flight was 30m late and check-in closed an hour before. That only left 60 minutes. I had to wait 24 hours for another flight.
Thanks for the replies. I think I'll try for a more realistic CX flight and hope I can get checked through.
