Here is a little Travel Hacking Deal which combines two separate tickets in Business Class to build a Europe to Australia trip for about €2234 in October. If flown directly the layovers can be rough with 7+ hour connections at times, that's why this is best used as an inspiration to visit multiple regions by building in stopovers and spend additional days in the Middle East (Jeddah), Singapore (easy access to South East Asia) or spend times along the thousands of islands that make up the Philippines. 

We HIGHLY recommend building at least a day between tickets so that if there are delays you are not left hanging. Additionally, the first ticket is with Saudia a dry or alcohol-free airline.

The first ticket is an Athens to Singapore ticket via Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and Male, Maldives.

This flight can be credited to any SkyTeam airlines such as Delta where you would obtain 12034 MQMs and 2407 MQDs or FlyingBlue members who would obtain 15 XPs for ATH-JED and 30 XPs for JED-SIN or 45 XPs total each way for a grand total of 90 XPs...

The second ticket is with Philippine Airlines between Singapore and Australia (Sydney or  Melbourne), sometimes long layovers in Manila. These flights only credit to their own program Mabuhay Miles or All Nippon Airways Mileage Club at 125% RDMs of Distance so for Sydney (13384 miles) and Melbourne (13458 miles).
