Now that international borders have finally re-opened, the travel news has been coming in thick and fast in Queensland. To make sure that you're on top of all things travel, we've wrapped up all the latest jet-setting news you need to know. Warning: major wanderlust incoming.


Virgin Australia has just announced Gold Coasters will soon be able to fly directly to Bali, revealing exciting plans for a direct flight path that will officially open on March 29, 2023.  Daily services from the Gold Coast's new international terminal will connect the two famous holiday destinations and will cater to the booming travel demand. 

The direct flight will take approximately six and a hour hours and with flights jetting off daily, Virgin estimates there will be 2200 seats available per week. The daily flights will depart from and arrive at the Gold Coast's new $500 million international terminal, which is expected to open very soon in mid-2022. To celebrate, Virgin Australia has just dropped some major flight sales, including return flights from Gold Coast to Bali for just $399, when the flight route opens. Currently on sale, these discounted flights are only available until 20 June 2022 and are expected to be snapped up quickly.

Virgin Australia CEO Jayne Hrdlicka said the addition of the new Gold Coast to Bali route reflects the growing demand for international flights from the Gold Coast and the general increase in Aussie's international travel. 

“In May alone our Gold Coast bookings were up 55 per cent compared to 2019, with bookings on our existing Bali flights up 48 per cent for the same period and growing every week," Ms Hrdlicka said.

Bonus news for surfies—you will be even able to bring a standard surfboard on the Gold Coast to Bali flights without paying any extra costs.  

Now that you'e got your flights sorted, plan your itinerary with the ultimate Bali must-do list.
