See More for Less with Qantas Explorer

Multi-city booking program saves over stand-alone fares.

Savvy travelers have long known that the best way to get from one of Australia’s great destinations to the next is by air. Now Qantas is making it easier than ever with Qantas Explorer. When you book your ticket to Australia, Qantas Explorer allows you to add domestic flights at a discounted rate so you can see more, do more, and experience more—for less.

Create your own customized Australian adventure, starting in one of Australia’s capital cities. From there you can fly to more than 30 Australian destinations with Qantas Explorer, making for all kinds of exciting possibilities. Or, you might decide to spend all your time in the spectacular state of New South Wales, home of Australia’s most famous city, Sydney, and six UNESCO and World Heritage sites.

In Sydney, you can take in the iconic Sydney Opera House, sail on the beautiful Sydney Harbor, explore golden beaches, world-class restaurants, and cutting-edge museums. Discover magnificent UNESCO World Heritage sites including the majestic Blue Mountains on the outskirts of Sydney whose ancient landscape offers awe inspiring views, incredible hiking and unique Aboriginal cultural experiences.

There are more than 1,000 miles of pristine beaches, untouched rainforests, wetlands and vast national parks throughout New South Wales. Qantas Explorer allows easy access to many of New South Wales’ World Heritage sites, some of the most stunning locations in Australia.

For example, you could fly from Sydney to Mildura to visit the hauntingly beautiful landscape of Mungo National Park. Or, it’s short flight from Sydney to Ballina to explore the Gondwana Rainforests on the north coast. While you’re in the area, discover gorgeous coastal towns including the bohemian surf paradise of Byron Bay and hundreds of miles of postcard-perfect backdrops. You can’t miss Lord Howe Island, a paradise of unique birds, azure waters, and forested hills, just a short hop from Sydney with the Qantas Explorer.

If other Australian must-sees beckon, Qantas Explorer can take you there with direct flights from Sydney. There are two ways to book Qantas Explorer fares. When you book your international flight on Qantas, use the multi-city booking option to reserve all your flights at the same time. Or, if you’ve already reserved your Qantas international flight, sign in from the Manage Booking page using your booking reference. Then, if your booking is eligible, you can go ahead and arrange all your domestic Australian flights. If you book through a travel agent, you’ll need to use option one—book all the flights at the same time. Simply put, Qantas Explorer’s discount for multiple destinations saves you money. And that translates into more great things you can do on your grand vacation in New South Wales, and the rest of Down Under.

With a favorable exchange rate and the great value Qantas Explorer, there’s never been a better time to book your dream vacation.
