Where are the most popular flight destinations in Australia?

The most popular flight destination in Australia, according to our users, is Sydney, followed by Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide.

As one of the world’s premier travel destinations, Australia boasts some of the best attractions for tourists. Ranging from the beauty to be found in the Outback, to the stunning scenery of Uluru, the pristine rainforests and white sandy beaches, man-made marvels, a café culture unlike any other, and of course, the captivating Great Barrier Reef. Take all of that and then mix it up with locals that radiate a passion for life: you’ve got quite a few brilliant reasons why people don’t want to leave the Land Down Under. By taking a cheap flight to Australia, you’re guaranteed to find something you’ll fall in love with, whether it’s your first time visiting the country, or whether you’re starting out a brand new love affair!

When is the best time to fly to Australia?

Off season:

Generally speaking, you should be able to score a cheap flight deal to Australia’s southern parts, which include Sydney and Melbourne, if you book your flights from late April through early May, which is when the south has its colder winter months. Cities such as Kimberly and North Queensland get hotter and more humid during the winter months than the cities of southern Australia. If you’re looking at visiting the warmer parts of the country during their off season, just make sure that you book your flights well in advance to avoid overpaying for late bookings.
