    Is it possible, to have a mileage ticket, that includes Cairns, Guam, Japan and Singapore all on one trip for 30k miles, or can you only do something like HKG, Guam and Japan?

    You almost certainly cannot stop in all those places for more than 24 hours on a single award ticket as it is too many stops. Even with the limited frequencies to CNS and HKG out of GUM I'm not sure it would be viable.

    But A Guam, Japan and HKG would be, correct? Because it is a stopover in say Guam.

    You are allowed two stops on a United return ticket award. If you fly HKG-GUM then GUM to Japan then Japan to HKG you can stop for more than 24 hours in both GUM and Japan.

    Is CNS considered Oceana because of the connection via GUM? South Asia to AU/NZ is 60 miles not 30.

    Would HKG-GUM<stop>CNS-AKL-NRT-<stop>-SIN<23 h>-HKG work? (one could swap the stops in NRT/SIN I think)

    That is of course based on assumption that HKG-CNS is 30k.

    Would HKG via AKL to RAR be 30k as well?

    It would appear that the answer is yes. Which is really counter intuitive.
    HKG-SIN-AKL-RAR is 15k and $54

    HKG-SIN-AKL-RAR-SYD-PEK-HKG for $30k and $120
