Qantas, Virgin Australia and Jetstar are all sending you to this Queensland paradise with prices starting at $55.

Seems Queensland is the place to be this year, or at least according to the latest sales by three of Australia's biggest airlines: Qantas, Virgin Australia and Jetstar.

In the last week, all three have slashed fares to Hamilton Island, making the island paradise that much more appealing.

Understandably, the cheapest fare comes from Jetstar with $55 fares to the Whitsunday Coast. This is a one-way journey between Brisbane and Proserpine, which is on the mainland, and is a great option for those looking for a budget trip.

Comparing apples to apples though, Jetstar also has direct flights to Hamilton Island starting from $89 each way. These are for various travel dates from now until May 2018. The major downside to this fare is that there's only one route on sale that gets you there, which is Sydney to Hamilton Island.

The next step up is on Virgin Australia with flights starting at $95 each way. Bear in mind that these include checked luggage and in-flight meals, unlike Jetstar's offering. This departs from Brisbane, but there are also sale flights departing from Sydney for $129, from Melbourne for $135, from Canberra for $169, from Newcastle for $185, from Adelaide for $189, from Hobart for $209 and from Perth for $245.

Qantas takes the cake for the most expensive flights, edging ahead of Virgin Australia with a starting fare of $99 from Brisbane. Each of its fares is $4-$16 more expensive than Virgin Australia with flights from Canberra at $185 and from Adelaide at $205. The main advantage Qantas has on Jetstar is it offers departures from Cairns. In this sale, these come with a price tag of $259 each way.

Both Virgin Australia and Qantas flights are for travel between August 2017 and March 2018, excluding blackouts for peak times.

Jetstar's sale ends at 11:59pm AEDT on 31 July 2017 and both Virgin Australia's and Qantas's sales end at 11:59pm AEDT on 30 July 2017.
