Consider Low Season. Summer in Australia is just immensely packed and is often expensive. Try to plan your trip in low season which is still nice with plenty of possibilities and activities.
Book Early. If you certainly know when and where you want and need to be. Then wait no longer, and apply this golden rule. Booking as early as possible will result in cheaper tickets.
Use Internet To Your Advantage. There�s a lot you can do on the internet to get that flight without breaking a bank. Start with Google Flights as their calendar tools or graphs show you exactly when to travel at the cheapest time. They are not however where you will end up booking as they only show the airline's own fares. Next head over to either Skyscanner or Momondo to see if the dates you have chosen are cheaper with an Online Travel Agent (OTA). Skyscanner also have a calendar tool that shows prices which are up to 8 days old (so use with caution) but they are a great way to tell if you have found a good deal.
These tips very well apply for festive holidays like Christmas or Easter as the prices will certainly get more expensive, especially Christmas as it is celebrated during the already busy summer month of December in Australia.
