How much are flights to Tasmania?
If you're flying on a budget carrier, like Jetstar, you can get fares for as low as $30-$50 each way during a sale, depending on where in Australia you're coming from. Those prices are usually available from cities like Sydney and Melbourne. Expect to pay at least double that if you're coming from further afield like Adelaide or Brisbane.
When is the cheapest time to fly to Tasmania?
Peak season to visit Tasmania is from late spring to early autumn, so expect the highest prices to be from November to April. Since you can fly from both Sydney and Melbourne in less than two hours, Tasmania's also a popular long-weekend destination, so expect to pay more if travelling over a holiday.
The cheapest time to fly is during the winter months, from May to October, when it's cooler – but also less busy.
How far in advance should I book my flight to Tasmania?
Whether you're flying to Hobart or Launceston, flights to Tasmania are best booked at least five to seven weeks in advance of your departure. However, often Jetstar sales offer cheap fares much further in advance and are worth taking advantage of.
