With a one-off FREE date change, it's time to explore Down Under. So what are you waiting for?

This is not a false alarm! Dust off those suitcases and get ready to see your own backyard again with Jetstar. We don't recommend waiting too long either, this sale is only available until midnight 5 June 2020.

Prices are cheap-as-chips on route from Sydney to Ballina Byron from $35, and Brisbane to Mackay or Newcastle to Melbourne from $39 one way.

Do keep in mind that most state borders are still closed, but you can travel between New South Wales, the Australian Capital Territory and Victoria. Head over to Smartraveller to ensure you've got the latest travel information.

For added peace of mind, Jetstar has also allowed for one free of charge date change on its flights.

Make the most of the cooler temperatures with travel dates running between June and July. This time of year is perfect to hit the slopes, both in New South Wales and Victoria. Most slopes are opening from 24 June 2020 or towards the end of the month.

Here are some more fares we think you'll love:

  • Brisbane to the Whitsunday Coast from $39 one way
  • Melbourne to Sydney from $55 one way
  • Cairns to Brisbane from $69 one way
  • Townsville to Brisbane from $79 one way

The great news continues with Qantas announcing that its domestic flights will return this June/July. The network will include tickets within Western Australia, Northern Territory, South Australia and Queensland (just to name a few).

To book: Need we say more? Waste no time in heading over to Skyscanner to lock in your airfares.

We repeat. Don't wait around, these flights are only available until tomorrow night (11:59pm 5 June 2020).

How good are these fares?

  • Price: Awesome. On average you could be paying around $220 return from Sydney to Byron Bay for a full-price ticket, and $170 return with a sale. Jetstar currently has them available from an incredible $70 return, that's a saving of $100 on a round trip. Talk about getting more bang for your buck.

  • Airline: Good. Jetstar aims to bring you travel without the huge price tag. Do keep in mind that your airfares don't include checked baggage, in-flight meals or entertainment but can be added for an extra fee.
  • Travel time: Great. Get to your destination faster with no connection times and direct flights across the board.
  • Weather: Great. These flights are perfect for that mid-year winter getaway. We recommend cosying up in the Hunter Valley with a fine wine and (usually) clear skies. You'll find the wine region an easy one hour drive from Newcastle or 3.5 hours away from Sydney - a great option for a weekend away.
