If you want to fly non-stop SYD-DXB, I think EK are the only ones. Great airline (I'm travelling MEL-DXB non-stop next week with EK). If you want something different, you could instead go to EY direct to AUH, then car/bus to Dubai.
OK, if you're not too worried about doing it as a one stop, then there are many options, with overall flight times comparable to EK's one stop services via BKK...
9:10p SYD 1 5:45a+1 DXB 1 EK 413 Non-stop 345 14:35
6:45p SYD 1 5:35a+1 DXB 1 EK 419 1-Stop 77W 16:50
8:05a SYD 1 6:35p DXB 1 SQ 220/SQ 494 Via SIN 744/773 16:30
3:40p SYD 1 2:55a+1 DXB 1 SQ 222/SQ 490 Via SIN 744/773 17:15
10:00a SYD 1 9:35p DXB 1 TG 994/TG 517 Via BKK 777/333 17:35
2:20p SYD 1 3:00a+1 DXB 1 MH 122/MH 156 Via KUL 744/332 18:40
7:35a SYD 1 8:45p DXB 1 CX 110/CX 731 Via HKG 333/330
if you have a preference for daylight flights, SQ, CX and TG offer good options, and fares would be pretty competitive.

No surprise you put SQ/Star alliance at the top of your list and dropped a CX flight or two off the list
