Qantas Explorer

See more of Australia and New Zealand than the average tourist.

If you're flying Down Under, you'll want to make the most of your time there. Qantas Explorer can take you further and gives you the chance to see more of Australia and New Zealand for less. 

Create your own customised experience, starting off in one of our Australian or New Zealand destinations. From there, fly throughout Australia or New Zealand and see some of the best of what's on offer. By booking your domestic flights with Qantas Explorer, it could cost you a lot less than booking your flights separately.
