When to fly to Australia

Temperatures change with the seasons, but when booking flights to Australia remember that the seasons are on an opposite calendar from those in Canada. When it’s summer in Canada, it’s winter in Australia. There are tropical regions in the north (Cairns for example) with high temperatures and humidity and distinct wet and dry seasons. The centre of the country is dry desert with high temperatures during the day and very little rain. The south (Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney) enjoys a temperate climate with moderate rainfall and normal temperatures.

Peak Season:

December to February can get very hot, but it’s great weather for the beach. Many airlines offer cheap flights to Australia around this time. In spring (September to November) and autumn (March to May) the weather is mild and temperatures are comfortable.

Off Season:

June to August is winter in Australia, but skiers and snowboarders might like to fly to Australia for some winter sports in New South Wales and Victoria. In the north of the country, the summer wet season is very humid.

Overview

Cheap flights to Australia take about a day and will deliver passengers to a truly different country. The land Down Under is red hot and surrounded by golden beaches and clear waters. Lush rainforests, lagoons, snow-topped mountains, desert and lush vineyards share the landscape with easygoing, friendly Australians and Aboriginal Australians, custodians of the world’s oldest living culture.

The cities are wonderful – Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra the major ones, all bustling and lively with plenty to see and do and eat and drink.

Sharing the country too is a stunning collection of wildlife – goannas, galas, quolls, drongos, pademelon, echidnas as well as the more familiar kangaroos and koala bears.

Travellers stepping off their plane will be able to do things here they’re unable to do anywhere else in the world. These include standing where the Daintree Rainforest meets the Great Barrier Reef, watching the Southern and Indian Oceans collide, camping by a billabong, learning the ropes at a jackaroo school, or visiting the world’s only numerical town – 1770, named for the year Cook landed on Australian shores.

How long is the flight to Australia from Canada?

There are a variety of flights available for travellers leaving Canada to spend time in Australia. One of the locations to take off in is Vancouver for a traveler who wishes to land in Brisbane. These flights can take about 14h 40m for the quickest option, while other flights may take up to 19h 45m to get to the destination. Travellers can also visit Sydney from Montreal. The flights between these two locations take 23h 35m for the shortest options, while some of the flights can take as long as 34h 05m to reach Australia.

Which cities offer direct flights to Australia?

Direct flights are available to Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane from Canada. Australia flight deals can be found for Melbourne when flying directly from Vancouver. Travellers can also reach Brisbane and Sydney directly from Vancouver. Some of the airlines offering flights between Vancouver and Sydney include Air Canada, WestJet, and Cathay Pacific. Those who are going to Brisbane can choose Air Canada direct flights or stopover flights by Air France, China Airlines, and Cathay Pacific.

What is the best way to travel around Australia?

Since Australia is a huge place, many travellers get from place to place by air. Some of the major domestic airlines in the area are Tiger Airways, Qantas, and Virgin Australia. Discounts on domestic flights are available through the Qantas Walkabout Pass for international travellers. There are also major car hires available at major airports and the large hotels in the cities. Taxies are also easy to find and fairly inexpensive and safe. Travellers can also use Greyhound Australia to travel across Australia by bus. The large cities have comprehensive public transport system with rail in Sydney and Melbourne and trams in Adelaide and Melbourne.

What are some things to do in Australia?

Travellers interested in the natural areas in Australia have several options like taking a day trip to Canoe Nitmiluk Gorge or diving at the Great Barrier Reef. The Gibb River Road is popular for driving for travellers interested in seeing more of the scenery. This road is 600 kilometres long and goes across Kimberley. Travellers more interested in the cities should spend time in Melbourne which offers great culture and Victorian-era architecture. Those interested in culture may also want to spend time in Adelaide which is known for its culture, art galleries, and parks. It is also home to the largest art festival in the southern hemisphere.

Do I need a passport or visa to fly to Australia?

Travellers interested in visiting Australia from Canada will need to have a valid passport to enter the country. A visa is also required for guests to the country. Tourists visiting for three months or less require an eVisitor visa or Electronic Travel Authority visa. There are also student visas, holiday visas, and many work visas that can be used to visit Australia. Traditional visas are processed as soon as they are turned in but eVisitor visas may process for anywhere from a single day to a month.

Australia climate

Australia is an enormous country and its climate varies as such. The north can be hot and tropical and the south cool with the occasional snow. When you’re planning your trip, remember that the seasons are opposite those in the northern hemisphere. Summer lasts from December through February in most of the country. It’s also the wet season for the north. The winters, between June and August, are fairly mild. The north has dry, sunny days and the south is dry with some snow in the mountains. It’s very important to protect yourself from the sun in Australia. Cover up with a hat and use plenty of high-SPF sunscreen.  

Getting around Australia

There are several low-cost airlines that offer domestic Australia flights. These include Virgin blue, Jetstar and Skywest. Qantas, the flag carrier, offers regular deals too. If a cheap trip to New Zealand are part of your plans, Freedom Air links Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and the Gold Coast with the North and South Island.

Train is a great, slower, way to see the country. Rail Australia runs the railroads. A journey on the Ghan promises an unforgettable experience.

Bus services are operated by Greyhound Australia, the national bus company. It offers daily services to 1,100 destinations in Australia.

Renting a car or a camper van is a great way to see the country. There are rent-a-wreck-style car hire companies in some major cities that allow you to hire a second-hand car very cheaply. Check the mileage limits in advance to ensure you can get as far from the city as you’d like.

What is good to know if travelling to Australia?

  • Sydney’s historic sewers have become one of the country’s most popular tourist destinations. They were built by British settlers and convicts around 1788 and are some of the oldest surviving remnants of Australia’s early European settlement. Try to get a place on a tour about the same time as you book cheap flights to Australia. More than 4,000 people apply for tickets but authorities can take just 180 people at a time.
  • To get a bird’s eye view of Sydney, climb the Harbour Bridge. Guided tours take about three-and-a-half hours. From the top there are views of the mountains, Bondi Beach and the famous Sydney landmarks such as the Opera House, port and downtown.
  • Much of Australia’s Gold and Sunshine coasts are given over to apartment blocks and theme parks, but 1770 (named to commemorate the year Captain James Cook landed) remains a tropical paradise. The town is in central Queensland, along the Capricorn Coast. Fly from Brisbane to Bundaberg and drive from there. It’s a 90-minute drive or so from Bundaberg.
  • Start your morning in Melbourne at the largest open-air market in the Southern Hemisphere, the Queen Victoria Market .
  • To get the pulse of Australia’s Aboriginal people, vacation for a few days with a traditional community in the Northern Territory. Gunya Titjikala is a venture between the Titjikala aboriginal community and Gunya Tourism, and provides accommodations in “five-star tents” beside the community, located 120km south of Alice Springs. Guests will learn about aboriginal culture and survival knowledge during the day and feast on “bush tucker” meals at night.
