Adelaide to Cairns

    Recommended Posts

    Has anyone done this internal flight ? If so, who did you fly with and what sort of price did you pay per adult ?

    Can you do it cheaper by train ?

    Cheers folks !

    ok cheers, yeah ignore the train comment ha ha , obviously I still can't get to grips with just how vast Australia is !

    As a science fiction fan, like me perhaps you are a science fact fan - I ask about the flights because of the total solar eclipse in November - can't miss that !

    We just went to cairns and price was roughly $260 return with Jet Star, this didn't include check in luggage or pre-booking seats.

     

    Bad news... Jet stars direct return flight was at 6:25am.

    We did it around 5 wks ago and paid $189 per adult but the return was $229 per adult and as AussieRob stated it's at 6.25 am, takes just over 3 hrs. We just took hand luggage each and paid an extra $20 for one 20 kilo suitcase.

    Hey your welcome, we saw that one in the UK but only from a back garden in Bedfordshire !!

    Hoping to meet Brian Cox there !!!

    The points I have earned from my two science mad kids who are against the move is an added bonus

    Yeah Jetstar only do the one flight per day from Adelaide - going up is ok, but coming back is a killer.

     

    For those considering driving, bear in mind that Brisbane to Cairns is the same distance as Adelaide to Brisbane...

     

    Then again, you can do it the way I did recently...
