Travel further north this weekend for a luxurious beach getaway like no other.
Lastminute is flying the flag for this cheap three-night getaway with flights and accommodation starting at $591 per person.
Flights are with either Jetstar or Tigerair, depending on what time you'd like to leave. Accommodation is a bungalow at Kewarra Beach Resort & Spa, so you know a pamper is definitely on the cards.
The cheapest flights depart during the day, so you might have to take Friday and Monday off, though you can upgrade to more suitable flight times for a fee.
