I was very interested in applying for a position in the Qantas Graduate Program, but have no way of getting a permanent work visa for Australia. I can apply for one with the sponsorship of an Australian company, but QF wants you to have one at the time of application (a catch 22...).
Does anyone know any loopholes for getting a visa that would be good for the duration of the two year program?

Get your partner to get a job with a Rio Tinto company in Australia and they'll sponsor you and create a job for you even if you aren't qualified for the role. Seems to work for a large number of protected koalas that come out here.
Then you can dump them after you are in Australia and have been accepted at Qantas.
