Qantas Vacations and Qantas Airlines are offering what they’re calling a One Week Walkabout – a weeklong vacation package to a number of destinations on Australia’s east cost, starting at just $699 for 7 days and 6 nights. Airfare starts at $798 with direct flights from LAX and SFO. You can plan trips to Sydney, Melbourne, or Brisbane and their surrounding areas. Sydney means seeing the famous opera house, the gorgeous harbor, Bondi Beach, or maybe a trip to Hunter Valley wine country. In Melbourne, the most Victorian of Australia’s cities, you can see the dazzling scenery of the Great Ocean Round, make a trip to the Phillip Island Nature Park, or visit the spa in Daylesford. And Brisbane of course means access to the Great Barrier Reef, the Gold Coast, and some of Australia’s most stunning rainforests.

But! This offer is only good if you book by March 16, so think about making your travel plans soon. And for more on what to do in these amazing cities, check out Katherine Losse’s fun essay on living in Sydney, and Andrea Clarke’s great tips for a quick trip to Melbourne.
