recommended SkyScannerThe best flight search site out there! LOVE IT! What maes skyscanner so great is that is allows you to pick from a whole range of options to find new combinations you might never have found or even ... read morethought of without it. Like allowin you to search for the best prices over an entire year (or month by month if you prefer). Or my new favorite you can search for flights within an entire country OR TO EVERYWHERE. The everywhere feature shows you flight prices from your destination to all over the world. And you can choose to fly from and to whole countries. So instead of putting in leaving from London, you can put the UK and you might find a cheaper option out of Birmingham or Manchester instead. It's especially great for flying into massive countries like the Australia or Canada and especially the US! Maybe it's cheaper to arrange a stopover in Orlando instead of flying direct! Such a useful travel tool! Give it a try at www.skyscanner.net!Yogic Traveler
This is the site to check to get an idea for the cheapest flight options. Besure to chec out of all the San Fran area airports.
recommended Jetstar AirlinesJetstar is the Qantas budget airline. Great service at great prices! The best way to get around Australia and internationally in the region (I flew with Jetstar to Japan, Hawaii and to and around New ... read moreZealand). I've had some rather long flights on Jetstar and they have been some of the nicest flights I've taken. Definitely recommend this service! And make sure to check their website for upcoming deals. I took a new promotional flight round-trip to Japan from the Gold Coast for a steal!Yogic Traveler
Last I checed they only fly to Honolulu in the US (which might not be so bad). It might be cheaper to fly to Honolulu and leave from there. United and Hawaii both have good prices on flights to Hawaii from San Fran. I flew EasyJet Sydney to Honolulu and it was a vry nice flight. Also the San Fran to Sydney flight (which I have also done) is 14 hours which is epic! It's one of the longest flights you can have. I flew United and they were reasonably priced but not incredibly confortable (large packed plane and I was in a middle seat)
recommended SydneyAlthough it is not the capital Sydney is Australia's most famous city. If you are heading to Oz you will most likely be at least passing though here. It's a beautiful city to serve as the gateway to ... read morewelcome you to the continent.Yogic Traveler
Good news if you are American the Aussie dollar just dropped back below the US dollar so prices will be better now than they were last year. Now flight prices can vary widely but I'll give you a few places to check...recommended SydneySydney, a thoroughly cosmopolitan city in one of the world's most beautiful natural settings, is a place that I usually like, and occasionally love. While certain elements of Sydney's ... read morebusiness-financial and hipster culture can be a tad pretentious, and the population often a far cry from "Australian-friendly", the wonder of Sydney's beaches, stunning waterfront, charming neighborhoods, and tasty (if expensive) restaurants and pubs make it a thoroughly lovely city to visit. See Circular Quay, Bondi, and the Opera House, but don't neglect hip spots like Newtown, Glebe, and the stunning walk from Bondi to Coogee, with a prospective stop for snorkeling in Clovelley's sheltered pool..Comment.7 months ago.

January is the height of Southern summer in Australia, so airfares then are among the most expensive all year. Expect to pay a minimum of $1400 USD roundtrip (probably with multiple stops and long layovers), and up to $2500 USD, economy. You'll fare better, of course, the more flexibility you have with your travel dates. Alternately, if you can find a cheap connecting flight to SIngapore, Scoot Airways (Singapore Airlines' budget carrier) flies direct to Sydney for as little as $200 one-way. Good luck! ^_^
