And this time there are 2019 dates available.

You can find these flights departing from Victoria (YYJ) for about $67 more.

You can also turn these into 2-in-1 trips and visit both Australia and San Francisco (or Los Angeles), for about the same price (instructions below).

You can also look at flying into one Australian city, but home from another, for about the same price (instructions below).

How to find and book this deal

1. Try a Google Flights search like this one...

Google Flights: Vancouver to Sydney, Australia (SYD)
^^^ look for the dates that are $924 roundtrip

Google Flights: Vancouver to Brisbane, Australia (BNE)
^^^ look for the dates that are $922 roundtrip

Google Flights: Vancouver to Melbourne, Australia (MEL)
^^^ look for the dates that are $908 roundtrip

- click on the departure date box to open up the calendar view and browse for cheap date combinations

- look for the dates that are somewhere between $908 and $924 roundtrip.

2. Go to Skyscanner or Flighthub or Kayak

- search for a flight from Vancouver (YVR) to...

Sydney (SYD)
or
Brisbane (BNE)
or
Melbourne (MEL)

- use the same dates you found on Google Flights

- the price on Skyscanner or Flighthub will usually be around $75 to $150 cheaper than what you see on Google Flights.

NOTE: The first search result on Skyscanner or Flighthub may not always be the best flights. Check out the different options on the first page of the results.

You may also want to try using the filters on either site to narrow it down to flights that are only 1 stop each way, if they're available for a low price.

You can also turn these into 2-in-1 trips, and visit both Australia *and* San Francisco, for a similar price

1. First, try finding a normal roundtrip flight to Australia, using the Google Flights links above.

For example, let's say you found a flight from Vancouver (YVR) to Sydney (SYD), from Feb 13 to Feb 27.

2. Now go to Flighthub or Kayak

- Change the search type from 'Roundtrip' to 'Multi City'

3. Search for a flight like this one:

Vancouver (YVR) to Sydney (SYD)
Sydney (SYD) to San Francisco (SFO)
San Francisco (SFO) to Vancouver (YVR)

- For the first and last legs of the journey, use the dates from the normal roundtrip flight that you found on Google Flights.

- You can play around with the middle date to give yourself more or less time in Sydney vs San Francisco.

For example, here is a screenshot from Kayak of Feb 13 to Feb 24 to Feb 27.



You can also try Los Angeles instead of San Francisco.

You can also look at flying into one Australian city, but home from another, and keeping the price the same

1. First, try finding a normal roundtrip flight to Australia, using the Google Flights links above.

For example, let's say you found a flight from Vancouver (YVR) to Sydney (SYD), from Feb 13 to Feb 27.

2. Now go to Flighthub or Kayak

- Change the search type from 'Roundtrip' to 'Multi City'

3. Search for a flight like this one:

Vancouver (YVR) to Sydney (SYD)
Brisbane (BNE) to Vancouver (YVR)

Vancouver (YVR) to Sydney (SYD)
Sydney (SYD) to Brisbane (BNE)
Brisbane (BNE) to Vancouver (YVR)
