Peak season:

Southern Australia has its peak tourist season from late December through the end of January. This marks the height of summer, which also means that flight prices are at their most expensive, which means that if you’re planning on visiting Australia over this period, you’ll have to book your flight tickets and accommodation as far along in advance as possible. On the other hand, Northern Australia has its peak season over the period of June through August, since temperatures tend to be warmer in the north during these months.

 

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.

Sydney

The Kingsford Smith Airport in Sydney lies 8 kilometers outside of the city center and getting there is easy since the public transport system is very efficient. You can use the Sydney Trains, which is your quickest option, or you can choose to make use of the Airport bus which will take you to the city center.

 

Melbourne

Melbourne’s Tullamarine Airport is located 23 kilometers outside of the center of town. You can take the Skybus Super Shuttle, which is an airport shuttle bus that departs every 20 minutes or so from the airport to the city center. Alternatively, there are taxis parked outside of the arrival terminals, which offer an easy way of getting to the city center, but will cost more than the airport bus service.

 

Brisbane

Brisbane International Airport lies 16 kilometers outside of the city. You can get to the city center by using the AirTrain connection between the airport and the city. The train ride will get you to town in roughly half an hour, and you can catch a ride every 15 minutes. Keep in mind that you may also use a taxi, which can be found parked outside of the arrival terminals, but taxis will cost you a lot more and might not be readily available.

 

Adelaide

Located 6 kilometers outside of the city center, the Adelaide Airport isn’t that far from town, and as such, calls for a short and easy transfer between the airport and the center of the city. The JetBus departs every 15 minutes, shuttling between the airport and the Adelaide CBD. You may also want to consider using a taxi to get to the city center, and although it’s a little more expensive than the bus, it can be the perfect solution for large groups to get to the city on a limited budget.

 

Perth

Perth Airport is located a mere 12 kilometers outside of the city center, and getting from the airport to the city is easy. You can make use of the CONNECT shuttle, which is a public transport service that offers an affordable way of getting into the city, or you may take one of the various taxis parked outside of the arrival terminals, the choice is up to you.
