Bargain Tour to Australia, New Zealand
Qantas Airlines http://www.Qantas.com is offering a very low-cost package to Australia and New Zealand, departing from either Los Angeles or San Francisco. Provided you book by March 31, a tour including round trip air fare and three nights in a hotel in both Sydney and Auckland comes in at a mere $1699. Prices are per person, double occupancy.
Travel is available on certain dates between May and September, winter in the southern hemisphere.
Other gateways are also possible at higher cost. This sounds like a wonderful deal for someone who is relatively immune to the travails of air travel and eager to catch a glimpse of the lands down under.
For an account of a trip to Australia, scroll back to February 1 for a guest post by Dale S. Brown. She opted to stay longer and pay a little more for her package tour, as I would. Overall, she was very pleased by the trip.
