As far as Tokyo, for no apparent reason Sydney does not fly there on the 24th that I can see. However, teams could probably just make China Air CA176 or New Zealand Air NZ4906, both to Beijing, both departing at 11:30am. Guaranteed that there are a thousand flights from there to Tokyo.
If they miss that there are no other flights to China for hours but several to Singapore at 12:40pm.
Other possible destinations from Sydney in that time frame include: Bangkok, Jakarta, Hong Kong, HoChiMinh, Manila, and Singapore.
