On my last trip to the US, I flew to Osaka via Jetstar and then directly from Osaka to NY. Currently, a flight from Melb-Osaka is about $492 (returne) and a flight from Osaka to NY is around $1150 for a total of $1642.  A “direct” flight for the same time period comes to $1728. So instead of having a really long flight, you can split the flight into 2 segment and also see Japan for a similar price as flying direct.

Fly to Bali or Jakarta from $605

Fly to Singapore or Bali Per-Sin $169, Mel-Bali $249, Adel- Bali $199 Plus Loads More via Jetstar

Fly to Singapore from Perth $119, Sydney or Gold Coast to Singapore from $169 and more with Flyscoot
