Explore the great southern land

The island continent of Australia is a traveller’s dream. Many spend weeks and months exploring its network of roads, beaches, mountain ranges and vast Outback – an arid and predominantly unpopulated stretch of desert-like land, which is blanketed over much of the country’s centre covering it in red soil.

Scorched under the sun, it’s possible to visit some of Australia’s unique natural landscapes, such as Uluru (Ayers Rock) which stands a staggering 348 metres above the ground. Like the monolith Uluru, much of the Outback is full of important cultural sites for Australia’s Aboriginal people, and it’s this great diversity of culture that lures many travellers to the continent.

Look towards the coast and you’ll find 89% of the country’s population who live in cities. Surrounded by beautiful architecture, art and a fantastic gourmet scene, Australian cities include some of the world’s most iconic destinations. For a really authentic journey, visit the country’s smaller and more rural towns to get a taste of traditional Australian life.

We fly to more than 60 destinations across Australia, including famous cities and off the beaten track places. So, whether you're diving the Great Barrier Reef or koala spotting along the Otway Coast, wherever you end up, you’re in for a uniquely Australian experience.

Important information

Local service fees apply for any changes.

Qantas Explorer fares must be booked in conjunction with a Qantas return international fare to Australia or New Zealand, and have the same validity as your international ticket. Prices exclude carrier charges, fees and taxes, which will vary depending on your departure and destination points. Savings are based on a comparison with the year round fare. At times, there may be sale fares available which may be cheaper than the Qantas Explorer fare for that routing.
