Maximizing International Mileage Trip

I'm going to SYD from WAS and I want to try and maximize my miles. I used the ITA software and that showed WAS-MEM-LAX-SYD-LAX-MSP(orDTW)-WAS for $1100 using a NW Fare from WAS to LAX and Qantas from LAX-SYD. Is there anyway I can maximize the LAX-SYD portion? Here is the fare rule for that Qantas flight: Thanks for your help

From: Los Angeles, CA (LAX-Los Angeles Intl.)
To: Sydney, N.S.W., Australia (SYD-All Airports)
