On LAN is possible, friends of mine do it in just some days from now.
Going through Buenos Aires on either Aerolineas Argentinas or Qantas should be good options too. Going all the way through Los Angeles is tedious, tiring (US immigration too) and more expensive. Check out also the options through Europe, for instance on British Airways, Lufthansa, KLM, Air France with their partner systems. The trip will be much longer but check out the prices! There are good deals from/to Europe.

It simply does not make sense to go all the way to Europe in order to reach SYD. There are excellent flights from GRU to SYD via EZE or SCL, with excellent fares. You will never get a cheaper fare via Europe.
I flew GRU-SYD with AR in 1996 (at the time they operated the 747 on this route and had a technical fuel stop-over in Rio Gallegos) and found the flight very good. I also got a free 2-night stop-over in EZE. At the time I think I paid about USD1,900, but my final destination was Brisbane and not Sydney and I also departed from BSB and not GRU. So the fare was excellent.
I would recommend AR or LA - and you may also break your trip in EZE or SCL, which are very interesting places to stay for a while.

GRU-FCO with AZ. Stop 2-3 days in Rome and then from FCO to SYD with these alternatives :
- CX/QF via HKG (QF has a c/s agreement with CX for FCO-HKG sector)
- MH via KUL
- SQ via SIN
- TG via BKK
or also if you prefer :
- KE via SEL
- JL via NRT
- EK via DXB
