See how your dream escape stacked up in the top ten.

Skyscanner Australia recently surveyed Australian travellers to find their dream destination for 2018 and it came up with a list of some tried and true favourites along with a few big surprises.

As to be expected, Bali, London and Auckland feature on the list with Bali still a hot favourite amongst Australians coming up number one. Singapore also made the cut, having recently topped the charts for Booking.com’s most booked destination in 2017.

The US took out two of the top three spots with Honolulu and New York coming in second and third, respectively. This might be due to the fact that both getting easier to explore with flights to the Big Apple sometimes on sale for less than $900 return.

Usually featured as a stop on an Alaskan cruise itinerary, Anchorage is a city we haven’t seen much buzz around before. It's certainly harder to get to but this could be a destination to watch out for with research showing that 25% more Australians cruised Alaska in 2017 than the year before.

Melbourne and Perth were two popular domestic locations that gained a place in the top ten. Melbourne is usually considered a must-see destination and Perth is known as one of the fastest growing cities in Australia, so it's little wonder they've piqued local interest.

If you haven't started your travel bucket list for 2018 yet, there's never been a better time to start dreaming (or living).
