How much are flights to Queensland?

When is the cheapest time to fly to Queensland?
The cheapest time to fly to Queensland is in February and May. If you want to avoid the crowds that come along with travelling during peak season and extreme hot weather, you're in luck with these months being the cheapest to travel during. In February, you'll see blue skies and weather that is ideal for visiting theme parks, hiking and water activities. In most Australian states, the school holidays are over and there aren't as many people flocking to the beach and popular attractions around the Gold Coast and Brisbane.
In May, you'll experience milder weather, but as a result, fewer people will be around. Who doesn't love being at the front of the line at theme parks? If you're heading to the north of Queensland, May provides great weather for land and sea adventures, but you may see an inflation in accommodation and transport hire. Skyscanner data shows that flying to Townsville from Melbourne is cheapest in November, so if you love a buzzing atmosphere, warm nights and the sun glistening over the ocean, book your flights for the second last month of the year.
How far in advance should I book flights to Queensland?
If you know the exact dates you want to travel, it is best to book your flights four to seven weeks in advance. Booking last-minute flights to Queensland is not recommended as there tends to be a significant spike in price.
