125,000 seats are heading across Australia and are just waiting to be booked.

Virgin Australia is officially back in business helping Aussies discover their own backyard. So if you were thinking of sneaking in a weekend away this winter, look no further.

We won't waste any time getting to the details. First and foremost, you only have until 11pm 2 July 2020 to lock in your holiday (that's tonight!). Prices are starting from a very bookable $69 a pop taking off from Sydney to Ballina Byron.

With health concerns still arising in Victoria, the government is urging people to exercise extreme caution when travelling. Be sure to check in with Smartraveller before you book.

Take your pick from Sydney to Brisbane, Melbourne to Hobart, and Brisbane to Rockhampton from $99 one way. Escape those winter temperatures with Adelaide to Alice Springs, or Sydney to Hamilton Island from $169 one way.

The fares don't stop there with:

  • Melbourne to Launceston from $75 one way
  • Gold Coast to Sydney from $95 one way
  • Adelaide to Melbourne from $99 one way
  • Brisbane to Sydney from $99 one way

Flying in comfort has also dropped in price this Happy Hour, with business class tickets starting from $250 each way. Catch yourself on the cheapest fares taking off from Coffs Harbour to Sydney, and Melbourne to Launceston.

We repeat, this sale is only available until 11pm tonight so head over to Virgin Australia to lock in your next domestic escape now.

How good are these fares?

  • Price: Great. On average you could be paying around $220 for a return fare from Sydney to Ballina Byron. On the same route, today's Happy Hour sale can score you a $138 return fare. That's a saving of $82 on a round trip.

  • Airline: Great. Virgin Australia is a full-service airline. This means that your tickets include checked baggage, in-flight meals and entertainment.
  • Frequent flyer points: Great. As a Velocity member, you earn 5 points for every $1 spent. So on the lowest fare in this sale, you could earn 345 points one way.
  • Travel time: Great. Forget connection times in airports, Virgin Australia offers direct flights across the country.
  • Weather: Good. The travel dates run through late winter, which leaves you with plenty of options. We recommend checking out Cairns or the Gold Coast if you want to escape the cooler weather or if you want to cozy up near the fire, you can't go wrong with a trip down to Hobart.
