Aussie Air Pass

Not to be outdone by Cathay Pacific's All Asia Pass, Qantas has rolled out the 2007 Aussie Air Pass. For as little as $1,099, you can fly round trip from Los Angeles, San Francisco or Honolulu and take three domestic flights within one of three zones in Australia.

The $1,099 fare is only good in May, which is Australian for late autumn. The zone division forces you to pay extra if you want to go to Uluru (a.k.a. "Ayers Rock") or the Great Barrier Reef (a.k.a., "Holy Crap, Is That A Shark?") from Sydney or Melbourne. Crossing the continent to Perth costs even more, but it's not too bad a deal when you consider that a round trip L.A.-Sydney ticket alone during May will run you about $1,200.
