Connects in AUH so gives you plenty of time to enjoy the Apartment . Do note that some flights are on 777.

Etihad Airways (EY) DRTLK RRTLK CMB to MEL

However, I'm confused because fare code is D. Isn't D use for business class? Anyway, have fun with this fare, I checked and there are plenty of dates available through next year. If you can't see the link, check the dates on ITA.

Also available CMB-MEL as one-way for 1,700usd on A380 operated by EK.

Edit: Fare code is indeed F, although it reprices to 4k, still a good price. For some reason, google flights is showing the price for D.

Stopovers are allowed. It is possible to connect in BOM which also operates A380 going to/from AUH.

CMB-BOM-AUH-MEL-AUH-CMB (with stopover in AUH and 3 segments in A380)

You can try Priceline, if it doesn't price on Expedia or EY website.

It is a very good fare with EY F...... but CMB - Australia via AUH?

MH J is about $1000 at the moment and takes only about half the time.

I thought it's worth to mention...considering EY Apartments don't come this cheap.

I'm not a fare rule expert but it looks like a flexible fare - unlimited stopover, max 12 months stay on last stopover, HIP exceptions, date change FOC, etc. You wouldn't buy this ticket and fly it as a whole. You have an option to break into segments and nest it with your other trips through next year.
