A veritable paradise for the culture-hungry tourist, Canberra is a small city with numerous museums and galleries, monuments and archives. Although the arts and history of this purpose-built capital is one of the main attractions, it is also home to plenty of natural beauty and outdoor activities, such as lavish gardens and nature reserves, bushwalking and cycling. If you would prefer a bit of excitement, Canberra also offers rugby matches, waterparks and a vibrant nightlife. Since this locale provides something for everyone, it is no surprise to find that tourists flock to it. Because of this, it is important to plan ahead in order to find the best price on flights.
From December to January the city sees its peak season. These months are pleasant in terms of climate, but are packed with both locals and tourists taking part in the Christmas and New Years celebrations. Unless you book well in advance, this is a difficult time to find cheap flights to Canberra.
While most tourists are gearing up for the holidays, the adventurous visitor will take advantage of the pleasant climate and the inexpensive flights to Canberra from September through November. Although tourists are few during this period, it is still a great time to go, as you will be able to stroll round Lake Burley Griffin or explore the National Gallery in peace.
Flights are at their cheapest and crowds are at their thinnest between March and May. This is a great time to enjoy one of the many local events, such as the National Folk or the Celebrate Canberra festivals, or simply bask in the beautifully calm climate while hiking through Mount Majura or Mount Taylor.

Somewhat difficult to get up steps with bag. Picking up at bottom of steps after flight worked well, however.
Staff from start to finish was friendly, helpful, and professional.
Short flight but everything worked as it should.
The flight attendant was so funny
This is the third time I have booked virgin for domestic flights with my elderly mother and each time the staff have been exceptional in kindness, caring and professional. Time to try our first international flight soon.
Delay due to mechanical problem, had to board another flight
Unhappy that I accidentally booked a return flight on March 23, not Feb 23 as planned. It cost me a lot of money to get a new ticket with Qantas and I could not get through to Expedia in time (the telephone system is slow and cumbersome, especially if you are a bit panicky and stressed) to try to fix the mess.
I left my coat with my wallet in it on the plane, and when we went back later that day, they had it in their lost and found, with everything still there. Thanks much to those who helped return it to me!
Don't like flying on the small plnes
Seat is spacious but cushion effect not really there, not very comfortable on long haul flight.
