A new year isn't the only reason to book a vacation. Any excuse will do, including a new season. Not everyone can escape Australia's winter by swapping it for a European summer, but a trip closer to home might still be on the cards — and if so, Virgin's latest round of cheap fares wants you to spend time in Hamilton Island, Byron Bay, Cairns, Hobart, Darwin, the Gold Coast, the Sunshine Coast and more.

This new batch of discounted flights spans more than 300,000 domestic fares. Prices start low at $45 one-way, which once again gets you from Sydney to Byron Bay — the normal cheapest fare in any Australian flight sale — and vice versa. From there, everywhere from the Alice Springs and Emerald to Canberra and Mackay is also covered, with no starting prices over $300.

This getaway-inspiring sale only runs for two days, until midnight AEST on Saturday, June 8 unless sold out earlier, with fares to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide also covered.

That means paying $79 one-way from Melbourne to Hobart, $69 from Sydney to the Sunshine Coast and $109 from Brisbane to Hamilton Island. Also among the local fares: Sydney to Cairns from $115, Melbourne to the Gold Coast from $79, Sydney to Perth from $119 and Brisbane to Launceston from $109.

If you're wondering when you'll need to travel, these deals are all about winter breaks for select periods between Monday, July 1–Saturday, August 31, 2024, with all dates varying per route. Inclusions also differ depending on your ticket and, as usual when it comes to flight sales, you'll need to get in quick if you're keen to spend most or part of this winter anywhere but home.

This sale is separate from the carrier's other round of discounts to Uluru, which runs until 11.59pm AEST on Saturday, June 8, 2024, to celebrate the launch of direct flights to the Northern Territory landmark from Melbourne and Brisbane.

Virgin's latest domestic sale runs until midnight AEST on Saturday, June 8, 2024 — unless sold out earlier.
