    The Stopover rules seems to be pretty clear and straight forward:
    So no stopover permitting in Australia, so SYD is not possible.

    NRT is able to be a stopover point in each direction if you want.

    SFO and MEX can b e added as stopovers for an additional cost of $100 each.

    As the airfare mentioned is from Australia-MEX then wouldn't MEX be the turnaround point? If so, wouldn't MEX be a free stopover as well as NRT in each direction?

    Indeed that would be the case. The turnaround point is considered a stopover.
