Just haven't found it
Nope, these fares explicitly do not let you use the QF codeshares on EK, and they don't allow EK flight numbers in the routing table.

Code:
FLIGHT APPLICATION    THE FARE COMPONENT MUST NOT BE ON
       ONE OR MORE OF THE FOLLOWING
           ANY QF FLIGHT OPERATED BY EK
           ANY VA FLIGHT OPERATED BY SQ.

I’m in Australia, whilst not quite as cheap these fares are still good ex Australia. Route map does allow EK, but only between Australia and Auckland, New Zealand.

Can anyone tell me what the max stay is on this fare? I want to get away for six months or so. Using a stopover in Indonesia or Thailand for 90 days and then another 90 in NZ. Would be flying ex FCO.

Potentially depends on which fare you are using, but all of the ones I see on FCO-AKL have a maximum stay of 12 months. You will probably have ticket validity issues first.

See ALG-SYD thread, there are currently Z fare variants of LH/LX ex-ALG that are roughly half the base fare ($1587) of the ex-AMS Z fares and have the same Atlantic and Pacific routing and stopover rules as those discussed here. ex-TUN is $1800 BF.

I also posted a screenshot in the first post of the TUN-SYD/AKL thread with a routing TUN-Europe-USA/Canada-AKL, but you could easily modify the routing to go through the USA/Canada in one direction and Asia in the other direction - TUN-Europe-USA/Canada-AKL-Asia-Europe-TUN.

LH/LX/OS/OZ/NZ/SQ - TUN-SYD/AKL - $1890 r/t - Business - FlyerTalk Forums

The P fare is cheapest, but doesn't allow stopovers, so pick a higher fare which doesn't cost too much more to add stopovers.
