Pirates, Australia's borders are now open to visitors worldwide AND the world's only non-stop direct flight from the European continent to Australia has been resumed.

The 17-hour London to Perth flight with Qantas was paused during the pandemic, but was relaunched yesterday (24 May 2022). This route is reported to be the ONLY non-stop flight between the UK and Australia until at least 2025.

We reckon a trip to the Land Down Under is well on the cards for many Brits, so we've paired up some of Qantas' non-stop flights with a week stay at a cracking Airbnb studio near the beach for £1,287 per person. So you'll enjoy a direct flight, saving yourself the hassle of stops and at least 3 hours flying, and getting a lovely stay near the beach for under £60 a night: result!

We've found this amazing Airbnb for under £400 for a week in Perth's port city of Fremantle. The studio loft has bushland views and is just minutes away from the beach. It's also got a covered outdoor seating area and a place to BBQ if you need it: what more could you want!

GRAND TOTAL: £2,176 flights + £397 accommodation / 2 = £1,287* per person

And there you have it, Pirates, a week long Perth city break, with flights and accommodation, for £1,287* per person.

And if you still aren't sure if a trip Down Under is for you, here's Kylie Minogue with a song, just for us Poms.
