Hi Moonlightsky,

Sydney will be just lovely in March. The weather will be good and you will not be there during school holidays. Easter is in the middle of April that year.

You are better off searching for flights in your own country in your own currency for times that suit you, since I doubt there are direct flights from Florida to Sydney. You will have to factor in connections and any Frequent Flyer schemes you might prefer too. Do some searches for flights about 11 months out from your planned dates, get a feel for the prices and then when you see a bargain, grab it.

Bali is in Indonesia, to the north west of Australia. It's about 6 hours flying time. A day of your holiday gone in flying and airports just to get there. Just sayin'.

agree autumn is a great time in sydney.

use www kayak.com to get an idea of fares.

most flights would be a one stop from the east coast via lax or sfo.

really your only choices are united, delta/virgin australia and aa/qantas.

qantas also fly out of dallas via brisbane to sydney.

schedules are usually established 330days out but early bookings are not always the cheapest.

subscribe to airline email for sales notification and /or monitor their web sites.

i would leave bali for another day. plenty to see in australia. consider heading to the sub tropical or tropical north if u need a break from the rellies.

Florida to Australia is a long journey and there are no direct services. You will need to fly to Dallas or LA to get a direct flight to Australia. Qantas fly from Dallas to Sydney via Brisbane and JFK-LAX-Sydney direct . Virgin fly LA-SYD direct as do Delta and United. Another option and rarely known is United fly into Cairns via Honolulu and Guam and you can easilly connect to SYD that way. Bali is not that far, about a 6 hour flight. Garuda and Jetstar have direct flights. Fares to Bali are generally cheap if booked in advance.
