    returning to Australia from Indonesia without cancellation

    I would say that travel as you haven't seen your wife for a year may not get approval to leave Australia. However, they do seem to be ok if people are suggesting they won't be back for several months - so as said, you may need to stay away for an extended period of time.

    Everyday Rewards Targeted offers

    They don't typically work that way. The do a calculation of how many points you need, and that's how many they will give you. So if the offer T&Cs say you get 800 points, then that is what it is, regardless of what your balance at the time of the transaction is.

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    It's not up to anyone here to define what it means, but that is pretty much what it means. As distinct from say Locally Transmitted (where you do know the source), or Locally Acquired.

    Experience with Australian border controls leaving the country

    It basically comes down to numbers. There is only scope to support a certain number of movements through quarantine at the moment. You just have to make decisions on what can fit within those parameters.
