Hi JT, we published a guide on this only last week which sets out the rules for this.

Yes, you will be able to use the Transit WOV program.
I am looking at changing my flight now to be from Melbourne to Hong Kong with Cathy and then Hong Kong to Beijing with Cathy Dragon 4 night in Beijing and then Beijing to Manchester, will still meet the requirements for the Transit WOV?

Yes, you meet requirements.
Destination A → Destination B: Mainland Chinese City → Destination C
Destination A cannot be Destination C
Just remember - on either side of your Mainland Chinese city must be two cities from different countries. To save confusion - just note that Macau, Hong Kong and Taiwan are also applicable destinations to either side of the Mainland Chinese city.
A clearer article of this transit program is available below:
