Yes, you cant/wont be able to ever book Australian domestic sectors on the SQ/or any other international airlines website, its due to something like the US cabotage rules.
The only time that this was relaxed was during the pilots strike a few years ago.
International airlines cannot carry Australian domestic passengers, unless its QF/JQ doing one of their domestic pax on an international flight things.
Like you cant book SYD - CBR on that SQ flight, unless you are flying SYD - CBR - SIN.
I was trying to find SQ MEL - ADL flights on the SQ website and cant, unless I book SQ WLG - MEL - ADL in J/subclass of it.
Edit: even SIN - MEL with SQ, then VA MEL - PER might not link. The system might put you SIN - PER as the only option.
Try options on the SQ website and see what comes up.
There are some articles that are a good read, AusBT wont allow me to put links up, anti spam, the blurb says.

If you'd read the blurb, you'd have seen that links posted are subject to approval by the admin team, not banned entirely. If your post is flagged for manual approval, please do not try to make another post in such a way as to get around the moderation software, when your original post is still pending approval.We'd ask you not to do this again - this creates more work for the admin team in 'cleaning up' topics and posts, and trying to circumvent the site's security software is against site policies, and if repeated, may require us to revoke your commenting privileges.
OK so back to my first question, for my existing VA bookings Mel to Per, if this flight is a codeshare, can I instead put my SQ number on the booking and earn SQ miles?

The Pilot strike a few years ago? 1989 wasn't it...
