Flying to Aussie soon.? Well you can get some great deals flying within Australia if you book in advance.
There are a lot more airlines now competing for your business in Australia with some fares only charging you only the taxes! These are usually only available if you book in advance but you can get lucky and get some last minute deals (These are usually gone soon after the deals are announced!)
If you know when you're going to OZ the best way to bag the bargain flight prices is to sign up for their each airlines special offer emails. Then when they release special offers for the dates you're flying you can catch the best deals.
If you haven't got that option, the best way to find the deals in one place is to use flight comparison sites in OZ that compare the flight prices of all the airlines in one place. Then once you have found the best price it can often be cheaper to book with the airline direct.
Remember most sites often charge a surcharge for booking by credit card unfortunately and some of the flight comparison sites charge an extra booking fee.
