Here's a way you can do it using the FSX flight planner. Initially set up a high altitude flight plan direct flight from, say, Brisbane Intl (YBBN) to, say Wellington, NZ (NZWN). Then click on Find Route to go to the map page of the flight planner. You will note the red flight path red line is direct YBBN to NZWN. If you click on NavLog at this stage, you will see the flight plan is YBBN>POODL>SCOTT>CHEWY>LHI NDB (272.0) and beyond.
You can click and drag the red line to any place you like. So, after LHI click and drag the red line down to a desired point on the Antarctic continent. That will be WP1. Notice that two waypoints still exists in the Tasman Sea. Delete these waypoints. You now have a direct track from Antarctica to Wellington. By clicking and dragging the red line to a number of likely waypoints (usually VORs) you can create a navigable flight path to Wellington. Make sure you enter your cruising height into the flight plan editor.
Your flight plan will look something like YBBN>POODL>SCOTT>CHEWY>LHI NDB (272.0)> Antarctica (WP1)>WP2 (Campbell Island)>Invercargill VOR (NV 116.8)>Timaru VOR (TU 115.90)>Christchurch VOR (CH 115.30)>Tory VOR (TR 114.60)>BAXOV>NZWN. Save the flight plan and print your NavLog.
One thing to note however, for some reason - and others may know how to overcome this - the next time you open this saved flight plan it reverts back to a direct YBBN>NZWN. Annoying.
Hope that helps.
