Flights Between The United Kingdom and Australia

From Wiki

Below is a list of Airlines that operate flights between Australia and the UK. All airlines operating between the two countries have at least one stop due to the limited range on aircraft.

Qantas flights to London comprise two daily flights from Sydney (one via Singapore & one via Bangkok), and two daily flights from Melbourne (one via Singapore & one via Hong Kong). Passengers from Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane, Darwin, and Cairns fly to any one of the three Asian transit points and change to another Qantas plane to continue onwards to London.
