Another point that is super confusing is the points calculator. For example, the Qantas points calculators indicate roughly 150k points for a one way business class flight to Sydney. However, when I look at actual dates, the cost is around 800k points. How do these two numbers reconcile?

The 150K would be for what Qantas call a Classic Flight Reward, which have fixed point prices. Availability tends to be scarce for popular international routes and seasons, especially for anything higher than economy. 800K is dynamic pricing, offered when Classic rewards aren’t available.
