Virgin offers flights to some of Australia’s hottest holiday spots for as little as $75 as Queensland finally opens its borders to all of NSW
- Virgin Australia reduced the price of two-million fares under the seven-day sale
- Return tickets to Ballina, the closest airport to Byron Bay, are being sold for $75
- People in Sydney can also fly to Byron Bay, Hobart and Adelaide at cheap rates
Virgin is selling flights to a number of holiday destinations for as little as $75 as Queensland finally opens its borders to holidaymakers from New South Wales.
The Sunshine State closed the border to 35 local government areas in Greater Sydney, Wollongong and the Central Coast during December’s Covid-19 outbreak.
But with NSW recording two weeks without a local case, Queensland’s border checkpoints are now being dismantled.
To celebrate, Virgin Australia launched the seven-day sale on Monday with a number of flights from Sydney to top Queensland destinations for under $90.
Flights to the Gold Coast will cost $79 and people travelling to the Sunshine Coast (pictured) will pay $89

Bargain hunters heading to Brisbane will pay just $89 for return tickets, while people looking for a tropical getaway on Hamilton Island will pay just $139.
For residents looking to travel within the state, return tickets to Ballina – the closest airport to Byron Bay – and Coffs Harbour are being sold for $75.
Border restrictions imposed on Greater Sydney by the ACT and Victoria also relaxed on Friday, while Tasmania and South Australia eased their restrictions on Sunday.
Sydneysiders can now fly one-way to Adelaide for $117, Perth for $179 and Darwin for $199.

‘The reopening of borders provides Australian travellers with another opportunity to go on a holiday, reconnect with loved ones, and to conduct business,’ a Virgin spokesperson said.
The sale ends at midnight on February 8.
