It's too far for anything but flying when you are in a time limit.

There are often specials and if you sign up for Virgin & Qantas newsletters you will receive advance notice.

I'd have to agree that air travel can be the cheapest way to get around.

As Bokhara mentioned, you can sign up to the email alerts from all the airlines - but the Tiger newsletter is by paid subscription.

The earlier you book the cheaper the flights. Try to avoid flying on Friday, Sunday and Monday as these tend to be the most expensive. Holidays and long weekends should also be avoided.

You can also sign up for email alerts from Webjet for specific routes eg Sydney-Melbourne. Have a look at www.webjet.com.au But you should avoid their booking fees by booking directly with airlines.

Book as early as possible for cheaper flights.

Greyhound has a number of bus passes available but they are only good value if you want to visit a lot of destinations.
