Hi

I'm looking into booking my flights to australia for around August time I think as this seems to be the cheaper than july. Does anyone have any advice on who to book with or whether its better to book a return flight or just one way.?

Thats true, there doesnt seem to be much of a difference in the price either. Aw thats great thanks, I'll have a look. My friends in brisbane at the minute so going to head there first and workfor a while and then travel around. Have you got any plans yet? When are you going?

Hey Christine, when I was booking I found Malaysian/Singapore airlines to be the cheapest and went with Singapore via Bali. I arrive in Brisbane early July and plan to stay there for a few months to work. I booked one-way in case I decide to go to Fiji or New Zealand after Oz depending on how much money I have but depends if you definetly want to come back! Maybe I'll see you there! :) James

Yea I literally just found one stopping in Malaysia in July for £610, one way, which is pretty good! So cheers for the tip. :) I was holding off until August beause I thought it was goingto be a lot cheaper than July so I could be on my way sooner. That sounds class, heres hoping the moneys good then. I would love to go other places as well. Yea hopefully. I cant wait to get out and meet some new people. :)
