Update: Availability seems to be coming and going this morning. It could be that the cheaper fares are put on a temporary hold when someone searches, and then released. Nov 16-30 wasn't working 5 minutes ago, but just tried again, and it showed up.

Currently having the best luck with seeing the remaining fares for Melbourne on ITravel2000.com and the remaining fares for Sydney on Expedia.ca. It could still be worth trying dates that I've declared as 'sold out' until this deal is officially dead.
