Want To Go To The Australian Outback? Here’s How To Score A Free Flight

Travelers are always on the lookout for low-priced flights to save money. So what's better than finding a cheap flight to Australia? It's getting one for free!

Australia is known as one of the most beautiful destinations in the world. However, because of how big the country is, most tourists fail to see its Outback and usually stick to cities such as Melbourne, Brisbane, or Sydney.

To change this trend, Tourism Northern Territory has made it easier for people from the United States to travel in Australia by giving free one-way ticket to one of the most scenic Australian destinations — Darwin, the capital of Australia's northern territory and the gateway to see the famed Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, which can be found in Alice Springs.

How To Avail The Free Flight

To experience the spiritual heart of Australia, travelers must book International Qantas Airways tickets through its participating partners including Qantas Vacations, Goway, Down Under Answers, or About Australia.

This will warrant them a free one-way flight from Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney to Alice Springs, Darwin, and Uluru via Alice Springs.

Through this initiative, people can save hundreds of dollars since one-way flights to the Northern Territory usually cost up to $230.

What To Do In The Northern Territory

The said rock, which the Aboriginal people call Anangu, stands a little over 1,100 ft. and towers over the World Heritage-listed Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park holds a special cultural significance for its people, according to the Northern Territory website.

"Whether you choose to walk with a traditional owner, join a camel tour, self-drive or dine under a canopy of stars there is something to suit everyone," advised by the website.

People can also witness the sunrise or sunset transforming the monolith to a breathtaking shade of orange to red.

If you're still not convinced, this tour is the perfect time to witness the critically acclaimed Field of Light art installation by artist Bruce Munro consisting of 50,000 lights that illuminate the desert.

The exhibition, also called 'Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakutjaku' or 'looking at lots of beautiful lights' in local Pitjantjatjara, covers the size of more than seven football fields.

Travelers can also visit Top End, one of New York Times' '52 Places To Go in 2018'. In the Northernmost hunk of Australia's Northern Territory, visitors can join camps and tours to know more about the world's oldest civilization made possible by indigenous partnerships.

This limited offer runs from May 31 to July 31 for travel before the end of the year.
