Why It's a Deal In a recent Kayak search, we found $1,246 multicity airfare arriving in Adelaide and departing Sydney from Los Angeles in mid-May (V Australia), and $135 inter-Australia airfare between Sydney and Adelaide (Jetstar). Three nights at Mercure Grosvenor and three nights at Travelodge Sydney average out to $445 per person. So, if booked independently, this trip would cost approximately $1,826. For $329 more, you get a guided half-day tour of Sydney, a guided tour of Adelaide with a wine sampling at Saltram winery, and all airport transfers. This package provides the time-saving convenience of having several components of an international trip booked in one go. But the dollar amount of savings may be negligible depending on your gateway and specific dates so it's worth doing some price comparisons before you book through Qantas Vacations.
More Extend your stay in Sydney from an additional $100 per person or in Adelaide from an additional $115 per person, based on double occupancy. To upgrade to the Hilton Adelaide and the Shangri-la Hotel, Sydney, with private car transfers, it's from an additional $500 per person, based on double occupancy, and $1,070 per person based on single occupancy.
