I suspect they can’t but a call to qantas should enable them to make the necessary links.

If all flights are QF metal and QF flight number, then it is possible to obtain all boarding passes and check the bags right through from the first airport, even if they are on different PNR's. We have done this often now without problem.

Is it possible for you to book MEL-SYD-DPS all in one award?
Yes that has been explored - however there is a $450 QF travel credit to use with AMEX before it has expired.
Ah that makes sense. In any case, I think Qantas should be able to issue both MEL-SYD and SYD-DPS boarding passes in Melbourne, as well as transfer luggage, even through two different itineraries.
It's detailed in their policy for interline and through-checked baggage.
It should also work from Bali back to Melbourne depending on the staff, but it won't make much difference overall as they'll still have to pickup bags in international and re-check them at the transfer point in Sydney, regardless of being checked in for both flights or not.
The international business class luggage allowance should be honoured on the domestic legs and they'll get domestic business lounge access to/from Melbourne with the SYD-DPS-SYD boarding passes.
Brilliant Brandon thank you.
