30,000 Qantas points is a lot to earn in a pinch, you might have to spread it over multiple sources. Qantas Wine does credit quickly whereas Online Mall will take a while.
As a last resort, you can buy a Qantas Top-up of 30,000 points for $884.
Unfortunately, I don't know any other quick-fixes that don't involve spending a lot of money or applying for a different credit card.
Maybe try pre-pay some bills in advance or buy a bunch of supermarket gift cards upfront, get some wine, and use Qantas Top-up for the remainder.

The fastest way, if possible, is get an 'eligible family member' to transfer (loan) you the points. These transfers happen instantly. Once you get the 70K from your Mastercard, give them their points back.

Sure, if you want your account suspended and potentially cancelled for breaching the QFF T&Cs! :P

Had the same dilemma. Qantas Wines has some good bonus points offers at the moment, managed to rack up 25,000 with two cases of wine at approx $400. If you are going to spend $$$ on points, may as well get a couple of cases of wine to boot. I think there are some bonus sign up points available too when you buy Qantas Wine membership. Points arrived about three days after i purchased.

Points from DJ’s can take up to 3 months to come through, and if you return the purchases the points are not credited.

For what its worth the 70k points sign up bonus from my qantas premier mastercard were credited in the same monthly statement as me hitting the minimum spend.
i would estimate that 99% of 'family' transfers contravene the rules anyway. If you did it once, you'd get away with it, as you step-god-cousins-nephew qualifies! I suspect that Qantas are in on the rort!

I'm interested what cases you bought to get 25,000 at $400. Care to share?
