Just a tad smaller than the contiguous U.S., Australia is truly a massive destination boasting world-class cities, endless beaches, tropical rainforest, a wild interior, and the longest coral reef on earth. For most American visitors, Australia is a once-in-a-lifetime destination, so to get the most out of a vacation Down Under, you'll want to spend at least a couple of weeks in the country and visit several different regions.
One of the best ways to save on air travel to and around Australia is Qantas' Aussie AirPass, a deal that includes round-trip airfare from the U.S. to Sydney, Melbourne, or Brisbane, plus three domestic flights to your choice of 21 destinations across the country. Prices start at $1,099 before taxes and fees. Read more about the Aussie AirPass in the SmarterTravel.com Airfare section. (Photo: Tourism New South Wales)
