Prices are set based on what the market will tolerate, nothing else. There's no fairness in the system. Aussies are willing to pay more than the Scandinavians, so the price is higher. On the flip side it's even more expensive from LON.

When I search OSL-SYD on the QR website this routing does not come up on the options. Only OSL-DOH-SYD, but I'd rather route through HKG.

I've tried using OTA's and skyscanner & hipmunk but those won't bring it up either.
The following routes are permitted for QR on the cheapest I fare from OSL to SYD

It might be a Matrix job to find the routes you want especially on non-QR codeshared flights.

Except for a seasonal route to AKL, I don't think QF flies internationally from PER.

So just checking the routing table on OSLPER QR IJGSP4PX (the cheapest filed on the city pair in I class), only OSL-DOH-PER is acceptable.

Code:
OSL-PER THU-05NOV15 QR

SPECIFIED          ROUTE: 1111                                 
OSL-DOH-PER
We have to go up to D class for an extra 400ish GBP before we see routes via HKG allowed.

Code:
OSL-PER THU-05NOV15 QR                                         
TAXES/FEES NOT INCLUDED

I am based in Sydney and what I'm doing is taking an award fare to OSL, then flying back with the QR sale (after a bit of a holiday) then flying back up to OSL on the return. Then waiting for another sale (BA perhaps) to fly back out. With exOSL to SYD being half the price of the exSYD to OSL, I consider it two holidays for the price of one.

I would do that too, but the problem with this particular sale is that it is only valid for a maximum stay of 30 days. Being home for only 30 days and on vacation in Oslo for the rest of the time doesn't sound like a good idea

Having real trouble with the multi-city option on the QR website. Google Flights seems to give me the decent routings that I want but there is no way to book them directly from Google Flights and the QR website won't show up the routings.

Can anyone recommend a different way of going about booking this?

By the way, for those having trouble with US routing, return to the US is quite possible, originating in Europe.

For example:
MAD-DOH-DEL
Then
DEL-DOH-MIA/JFK
Prices out at around $1600.

Double open jaw like return as BKK-DOH-MIA also prices out similarly.

Might be a great run if you can position in MAD/ARN/CPH.

Prices out of Scandinavia are cheaper by about $200.

They have PER-SIN on the 737

Also noted a lot of the sale fares now have significantly more restrictive fare rules - e.g. FRA-SYD permits FRA-DOH-SYD only which is a shame

But does it ticket? I've seen some crazy open jaws on QR price out but fail to ticket.

What's the trick for something like that? Best I can do is 2800 Euro. Tried using multi-city picking each leg, and then multi city just doing MAD-DEL and return DEL-JFK. Also tried BKK (which was cheaper.

I also am seeing 2800 for this. How did you get 1600??

I did a multi city search on matrix. Once I saw the price, I did the same search on google flights. Orbitz managed to show me the itinerary with the right price. Of course, your return date (DEL-JFK) has to be within 30 days. If you make it 31, it jumps to 2800.

Right now I'm easily able to find the same route MAD-DEL/DEL-MIA for around USD 2100. The 1600 fares might be around (matrix says they are..) but you'll need to play with the dates a bit.

Managed to book it by changing from Google Flghts UK to the Google Flights USA version. It then gave an option to book directly on Orbitz.

Apart from some phantom availability on some routings it all worked okay.
