Won't hurt, give it a go!
A return trip in J transcon, or trans tasman depending on your preference, should get you there nice and easy. Why not weekend in Queenstown, or Christchurch

Where are you based? What's your travel expected to be like next year? I would definitely go for it if you're that close

Free exit row seat selection, being able to select the good seats on the aircraft (eg. row 4 on the 737s, seat 1A etc.) right from time of booking, being able to get ahead of the hoards of WPs fighting for points upgrades, a bottle of wine each year, and most of all, white coasters are the main benefits that come to mind. (Correct me if I'm mistaken with any).
Nothing massive like the step up from gold to Platinum, but still some handy little benefits.
if you're only 130 points out, I'd say go for it.

Partner platinum is handy too, though it may not benefit everyone.
There's a 50% status credits promo for Business travellers using QANTAS Business Rewards at the moment. AUSBT has posted an article about this. If you can take advantage of this this could help you cheaply get the 130SC you need.

The answer to this does depend quite a bit on your flying.

I am close to Platinum 1, never achieved before and
could book a couple more trips to get over the line. The issue is, I am done
with too much travel and next membership year, I will reduce massively. Perhaps
back down to 800-1000 SC level.
If I push for Platinum 1, and next year don’t even achieve
1200 for retaining Platinum – would I fall straight back to Gold (life) or would
I only drop one tier down to Platinum
