No they put additional gas tanks in the cabin. This is a standard practice for all types of planes when they don't have the range. Here's one for a Hawaiian 717 for a flight from the mainland.

to Oceania, they normally fly them around the "wrong way": Canada-(Greenland)-Iceland-Europe-Middle East-India-SE Asia-Indonesia-Australia-(New Zealand).

No they do not do this to anywhere EXCEPT Hawaii. Hawaii being out of reach of any other ferry route they have no choice. It is far safer and cheaper to fly the planes the longer distance than to take days fitting, certifying and paying the extra insurance costs with adding the extra tanks.

I disagree, what an experience to fly a Q300 (fairly advanced prop) so far across the world.

Delivering a Small to Medium T-Prop across vast distances would be a fantastic challenge and great flying!
