Steps you need to do:
I like the domestic Qantas Club in Australia but tend to go to the one for status passengers. Not sure what is the main difference between the paid and status-based domestic lounge?
The bonus status credits that Qantas is handing out like candy help frequent flier program members retain or reach a higher tier.

Qantas Australian lounge network is correct as at 10 May 2021, but is subject to change due to changes in state and territory specific restrictions, or health and safety advice. Lounge access eligibility conditions apply. Temporary measures have been put in place across the Qantas lounge network including capacity restrictions, physical distancing requirements and changes to our food and beverage service offerings. The Sydney and Melbourne International First lounges and our Brisbane International Business lounge are now open. All other International lounges remain closed. Business, Gold Frequent Flyers and Qantas Club members can visit the First Lounge subject to capacity limits until the neighbouring Business lounges reopen. Business customers, Chairmans Lounge, Platinum One, Platinum and Gold Frequent Flyers and Qantas Club members can access to Air New Zealand lounges in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown, subject to opening hours and capacity limits. Please be advised that lounges are subject to capacity limits at the time of your visit. Please remember to check our airport service changes page for the most up to date information on lounge openings and updates. If you’re flying domestically on Qantas, QantasLink or Jetstar within Australia, and on Jetstar within New Zealand you may bring one guest to join you in a Qantas Club lounge. When visiting an international Qantas Club lounge, you are able to invite one guest each time you visit but both you and your guest need to be travelling together further that day on the same flight.
