  • Enter your preferred departure airport and travel dates into the search form above to unlock the latest Australia flight deals.
  • Australia receives flights from the UK at many of its larger international airports, which also provide good onward connections to regional and domestic airports. For destinations in Western Australia, Perth Airport (PER) is the best airport to fly into. Brisbane Airport (BNE) and Sydney Airport (SYD) are on the east coast, while Melbourne Airport (MEL) and Adelaide Airport (ADL) are in the south east, so consider which one of these makes most sense depending on where your holiday will start. Cairns Airport (CNS) is in the north-east of the country and is a good option from the UK if you want to explore the very north of Queensland, while Darwin International Airport (DRW) services the Northern Territory.
  • If you are looking at flights to Australia so you can visit Kakadu National Park – a World Heritage site – think about flying into Darwin. This is the closest airport to Kakadu National Park and from here, you can complete your journey with a 3h road trip.
  • It is easy to exchange money in Australia. There are foreign currency counters in all the main airports, and it is also possible to use ATMs to withdraw Australian currency for your trip – please note that some of the more remote towns may not have ATMs available.
  • If you are travelling to the centre of Australia to see Ayers Rock and the surrounding area, consider flying into Sydney from the UK and booking a connecting flight to Alice Springs Airport (ASP). A direct flight takes around 3h and from there, you will need to hire a car for the 5-6h drive to Ayers Rock.
  • If you are travelling with children under the age of 7 and hiring a car to drive to and from the airport, it is mandatory to use an age-appropriate child car seat when driving in Australia. You should be able to reserve a car seat from the car hire company before you arrive. If travelling by taxi, be aware that, with the exception of New South Wales, it is not mandatory to use such a seat in a taxi, as long as the child can sit on the lap of an adult passenger in the back seat. In New South Wales, it is mandatory for children who are under a year old to be secured in some form of child car seat in a taxi, so you may want to consider bringing your seat from home.

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in GBP.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
