Looking for sun, surf and adventure? The Gold Coast has it all and then some.

Virgin Australia has just dropped a 72-hour "Gold Coast getaway" sale with loads of cheap seats available throughout the next 9 months.

The cheapest flights in this offer are from Launceston to Gold Coast from $65 each way.

Other fares we think you'll love include:

Flights in this Virgin sale take off between late April to mid-June, mid-July to mid-September and mid-October to mid-December. That gives you 4 seasons to choose from.

How good are these Virgin sale fares?

These Virgin Gold Coast flights aren't the cheapest we've seen lately. Jetstar's Travel More sale (which ends tonight) has Sydney to Gold Coast flights from $39 each way. That's $30 cheaper than Virgin's price of $69 each way in the same travel period.

The real point of difference is for Velocity frequent flyers who will automatically earn double the amount of Status Credits on all flights up to 30 June 2022.

You can compare fares yourself with Skyscanner to find the best deals.

This Virgin sale ends 11:59pm AEDT 23 March 2022, unless sold out prior.

These fares at a glance

  • Okay flexibility: Under Virgin's Passenger Promise you're entitled to free unlimited date changes for travel until 30 April 2022. A fare difference may apply. Keep in mind this has been extended in the past but may not be extended further.
  • Good airline: Virgin has flexible Economy fares. Select a Choice fare for extras, but be prepared to pay more.
  • Good frequent flyer points: Earn 5 points for every $1 spent as a Velocity member. Earn 325 points on the cheapest one-way trip in this Virgin sale.
  • Great travel time: Get straight to the sunny beaches of the Gold Coast with direct fights in this offer.
  • Great weather: We think April to May is the best time to visit the Gold Coast. Just after the Easter holidays is best (the crowds will have died down) and you'll enjoy consistently warm weather. See our things to do guide for inspiration.
