Lord Howe Island flights from $797 return
Witness Australia's natural beauty during winter 2018.
Sitting off the coast of NSW in the heart of the Tasman Sea, Lord Howe Island is only a short flight from the mainland though feels worlds away.
From Sydney, flights take two hours each way while flights from Brisbane run closer to one hour and 45 minutes. This might seem like a skip and hop away but only Qantas serves this route, resulting in fares upwards of $1,000 return.
Right now though, the flying kangaroo has early bird fares to the island for various dates in May, June and July starting at just $797 return from Sydney and $799 from Brisbane.
The specific dates to fly for the lowest prices are 10-17 July 2018 from Sydney and 1-8 June from Brisbane, although you can play around with dates to find numerous flights under $900 return from both.
Blessed with sandy beaches, forest and clear waters to dive in, during winter the temperature tends to sit around 19°C max which, while not ideal for stretching out across its beaches, offers cool weather for exploration and diving. And at less than $800 return, is priced well for something that should be on your bucket list.
Flights can be booked through I Want That Flight.
These are early bird flights with no set end date other than when they sell out.
