Somewhat surprisingly, at least to me, is the Hilton is cheaper than the Curio

I'm still undecided for next year. I think I'll have the capacity for 2 TPAC DOs in the spring and trying to weigh SIN DO, Japan DO, and OzFest.

I took advantage of the 100% bonus on IHG points and grabbed a few nights at Holiday Inn Darling Harbour. Shockingly it was the cheapest hotel at 20K points but most expensive going $600 a night.
Am I missing something? I'm seeing the Holiday Inn Darling Harbour for 35,000 points a night.

Those are gone, but based on your alert I was able to snag a first class seat on QF on Monday, May 20th. Thanks so much.

Put rxgeek & my equal half as bronze. A repeat visit will depend on airfare deals.

Put me down as Gold for now (hopeful this turns out better for me than having to drop out last year). Was going to hold off on flights until later on, but saw space open up for QF first class for Monday 5/20/19, LAX-SYD and decided I'd take the chance again and book it.

Also as a heads up I'm seeing QF first class award space on 5/19/19 & 5/20/19 for DFW-SYD.

Return has nothing good space wise. cocobird grabbed the last 5/20 seat LAX-SYD when i posted earlier so nice to see even more space has opened up.

This is on my radar, but until I know where I'll be in May (hopefully I'll have some idea by January), I won't be able to make any decisions or make flight arrangements.
