Vancouver to Sydney, Brisbane, or Melbourne, Australia - $575 to $685 CAD roundtrip

Sydney, Australia

Qantas has once again dropped the price of their flights from Vancouver to cities in Australia, this time down to between $624 and $685 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

You can also find these flights from Victoria (YYJ) for about $75 more.

Update @ 8:15 PM PST - Qantas is now showing a few *non-stop* flights from Vancouver to Sydney in January for $575 CAD roundtrip including taxes!! (see update below)

You can also turn these into 2-in-1 trips and visit both Australia and San Francisco (or Los Angeles), for about the same price (instructions below).

You can also look at flying into one Australian city, but home from another, for about the same price (instructions below).

You can also find flights from Vancouver to a few other places in Australia and New Zealand (Adelaide, Canberra, Hobart, Gold Coast, Christchurch) for a lot less than their usual price... ($742 to $853 roundtrip). See instructions below.

Update 12/4 - While the Qantas deal is finished, American Airlines is now showing flights from Vancouver to Australia for $703 to $813 CAD roundtrip including taxes. Certainly not as attractive as the Qantas deal, but also an unusually low price. (See update below)

Update 12/5 - The American Airlines flights are now gone as well.

    Hi. These are awesome deals!
    However, when I reversed the locations (Melbourne to Vancouver) the prices were 2-3 times more. Is there anyways to find or orchestrate these deals in reverse? As much I enjoy going home, my family also like to come to Canada.

    Thanks

    Josh
