Default Unusual QF42 route

Can anyone explain why today's QF42 CGK SYD is flying far north east then heading to Sydney, instead of the normal route going south east as soon as taking off

Probably avoiding the ash cloud from the Volcano near Bali

Qantas are very particular about safety, it's definitely ash cloud related.
