Booking link: you can book these fares by going directly to the Virgin Australia website. However, I suggest clicking through the Cashrewards website to earn 2.1-3% cashback.

Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. Fares may disappear quickly, so we suggest booking as soon as you are confident in your travel dates.
