Sprawling Los Angeles is a popular holiday destination for Australians – and with good reason. The city is known for its celeb-spotting culture, epic sunsets and cool beaches. Starstruck tourists can visit movie studios, take city tours or see filming locations of their favourite shows before taking a stroll down Santa Monica Pier or watching the sun go down at a bar in quirky Venice.

Located on the west coast of the USA, Los Angeles is one of the easier USA locations for Aussie holidaymakers to visit, with direct flights from three Australian airports. LAX (Los Angeles Airport) is a great gateway for Australians to explore other USA destinations or transfer to Central and South America.

Los Angeles insider flight tips

  • Flights with China Southern are often the cheapest way to travel to LA, but they have long layovers (up to 25 hours) in China – so it’s often worth spending a little more to fly direct with Virgin or Qantas.
  • If you’re transiting through LA to elsewhere in the USA, be aware that you have to clear customs and collect your baggage at LAX – leave plenty of time to do this, especially if the purpose for your stop at LAX is for a stopover.
  • Due to passing the international date line, if you fly direct to LA you’ll actually arrive at an earlier time of the day than you set off in Australia, so factor this into your plans. Don't be alarmed if you experience jet lag, it is completely normal when going between different time zones.
