Heading Down Under can be a long journey. And because of that, you’ll want to be sure to give yourself plenty of time to explore while you’re there. With these low fares from Air China, you can spend several weeks in Australia — all starting from £426 return.

The fares are with Air China, which isn’t the most well known economy product. Like all flights originating in the UK heading to Australia — with the exception of Qantas’ nonstop from London (LHR) to Perth (PER) — you’ll be required to make a stop along the way. With these fares, that stop is in Beijing (PEK) or Chengdu (CTU).

To book, head to SkyScanner to search for the cheapest fares from London to Sydney or Melbourne. Once you’ve found dates, TPG UK recommends booking directly with the airline, so head to Air China and plug those dates into the carrier’s own search engine.

Airline: Air China
Routes: LHR to MEL/SYD
Cost: £426+ return
