Posted:OK so I had a look at tickets online to snap up some cheapies and it seems weird... Qantas are around $200 each way which seems like a lot... and no direct flights down after 8.30 am! just 4-5 hr flights via Syd or Melb eek

Do they not release tickets till later in the year or something?



Same with Virgin.. almost no direct flights. One cheapy down at midday. at least a few back. But hell, I hate flying Virgin. All those cheesy jokes, giggly attendants and overpriced kit-kats for lunch. Ugh

If that's return from Brisbane that's quite good I think. I remember paying about $270+ for a return ticket and that was from Melbourne to Adelaide. Granted I purchased my flights only a month or so prior.

Posted:$200 each way is average, not good not bad. I think you could wait a while til some specials get released.

I remeber before Virgin when it was Ansett and Qantas...$500+ each way...

Posted:OK

Succumbed to the temptation of a cheapie promo and booked a $129 Bris-Adelaide Virgin flight at 12noon Friday... DJ756. Wanna come along for the ride, Gita ubbrollsmile and Paul and others... smile



There must be some other events on that weekend cos a lot of cheap seats are already gone for that day. There was a Masters meetup or something last year wasn't there? I remember seeing some fit looking people at the airport.

Posted:That's awesome Kate - glad to hear that it's going ahead again this year. I am close to booking the Melbourne Juggling Convention venue and am planning to move it one week later (26-28 Sept), so it is just 4 days away from CG! SO if anyone fancies festival-hopping, there will be very little lag-time between these two events! So before you buy your flights, have a think about combining the two!

Website will go up soon =:o)
