AU-JP is one of those routes that is getting hard to come by. I am also P1 and have been able to get x2 J rewards over the past few years on QF61/26, 25/62, 25/26, 79/80, 61/80, 79/26 and more recently QF80 xHND but this will not happen now. From memory most seats had to be requested and sent via then SST for an additional request and/or approval.
I was looking for a flight in Feb. Ski season so I guess I'm just too slow. I can see a couple of options late this year as well which answers my original question. I just found it odd that I couldn't spot the flight at all when I searched.
