Melbourne flights

going to Melbourne next year around 5/17, return within 7-10 days.

I am sure there are many Oz ppl here, so could you please give me #
a hint what to expect regarding price for a return ticket ?
Which airlines usually offer the best (cheapast) deals ?

Qantas website has flights for [strike]13,000[/strike] 9600NT each way.

That sounds pretty cheap to me…

usually it’s dirt cheap to go to Australia but to leave the country is going to be pricey…if you can snap a cheap fare with quantas or malaysia airlines …lucky you…also check out air asia x …or tiger
