Need help to buy tickets for a domestic flight?

Aussies love to travel overseas, there's no doubt about that. Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) data from before COVID-19 shows as many as 2.24 million Australians left the country for overseas pastures in December 2019 alone! Our own data meanwhile shows that 'holiday expenses' was the second most common reason our customers took out a loan in 2022!

While going overseas is appealing given our isolation from the rest of the world, Australia is a very big country with lots to see and do. So big, in fact, that there's a good chance you've hardly seen any of what our own backyard has to offer!

From Perth to Brisbane and everything in between, our competitive interest rates and flexible repayment options make it easy for you to get the funds you need to book your next trip across Australia.

How much do domestic flights cost in Australia?

Domestic flights will likely be a fair bit cheaper compared to international trips, but they can still cost a lot if you're not careful where and when you look. ACCC data from December 2022 found domestic airfares were well above pre-pandemic levels, with the average domestic ticket sitting 27% higher in October 2022 compared to October 2019.

Our analysis of domestic airfare prices from the Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics (BITRE) shows the average of the cheapest available prices across all domestic routes in 2022 was $396. That's a 19% increase from the average cheapest domestic flight in 2019 ($333).

It's important to note that airfares can vary greatly depending on a number of factors, such as the airline, the time of year, the destination, and how far in advance the ticket is purchased. For example, the cheapest airfare (on average) when flying from Perth to Sydney in 2022 was $755: nearly double the average!

  1. Melbourne
  2. Sydney
  3. Brisbane
  4. Gold Coast
  5. Adelaide
  6. Perth
  7. Cairns
  8. Hobart
  9. Maroochydore
  10. Canberra

That list is a bit boring though - there's so much beauty in our own backyard that most Australians have never seen. Here's a selection of some of our most amazing places you can visit:

Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef (and the Whitsundays)

Located off the coast of Queensland, the Great Barrier Reef is one of the natural wonders of the world for good reason. As the world's largest coral reef system, it's one of the best places to snorkel, scuba dive and explore our ocean wildlife.

Uluru at Sunset

Uluru

In the heart of the Australian outback, Uluru is a sacred site for the Indigenous Anangu people and a popular destination for visitors both foreign and domestic. Camping near this 348m tall monolith is a must-have experience.

Large rocky cliffs and characteristic blue haze in the Blue Moun

The Blue Mountains

The Blue Mountains - able to be reached in a short day trip from Sydney - offer some of the most stunning and peaceful views in all of Australia. It's a great spot for camping, hiking, and exploring caves, and there are some mountain towns you can visit as well.

Sea Lions at Seal Bay, Kangaroo Island

Kangaroo Island

Australia's third-largest island, Kangaroo Island, is just a brief ferry ride off the coast of South Australia. It's home to a vast array of wildlife, including koalas, sea lions and yes, kangaroos!

Aboriginal pictograph, Kakadu National Park, Arnhem Land, Australia

Kakadu National Park

A certified UNESCO World Heritage site, Kakadu National Park is Australia's largest national park, covering over 20,000 square kilometres. Starting from an approximate two-hour drive from Darwin, you can explore the traditional lands of the Bininj/Mungguy people at your own pace.

Great Ocean Road

Great Ocean Road

A scenic coastal drive in Victoria, the Great Ocean Road offers breathtaking views of towering cliffs and rock formations, including the famous Twelve Apostles (technically eight now!).

Fancy an international flight instead?

Want to escape and see a bit more of the world? You can also take out one of our fast, flexible online loans for an international holiday. The most common overseas destinations are as follows, according to Expedia: click the relevant links to learn more about each one.

What else can I use a holiday loan for?

  • Accommodation
  • Travel insurance

Alternatives to flying

Flights can be a major chunk of the overall cost of holidaying in Australia. While convenient, it's possible to travel around the world the country without hopping on a plane. Instead, you could try:

  • Driving
  • Caravaning
  • Train travel
  • Bus travel
  • Cruises

By exploring alternative modes of transport, you can add a unique and memorable element to your domestic holiday while reducing your carbon footprint (in most cases) and seeing more of the country.

You can use a Jacaranda Holiday Loan for more than just flights.
