from europe to australia? (cheapest ever, 2-3 weeks to get there)hi hi!
in the second week of february, i ll be trying to get to Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. I need to be there at the end of the month latest, so I have some time to change planes several times, even to stay at some places for a few days. I would love to spend some time somewhere in south east asia where i could surf and dive before i finally reach australia.
so the idea is, that i suppose overall pirce to be cheaper if i take several shorter distance flights compared to one flight or two connecting flights. is that correct? i would really like to make it under 500euros and i ve heard that it is definitely possible. what i would love to hear from you guys is some suggestions for cheap air lines or air routes operating between some countries i might be flying through..
as for my point of departure, i would prefer central europe, but i guess my chances only start somewhere at dusseldorf and brussels?
Thanks a lot!

Welcome to TT!
i would really like to make it under 500euros
If you mean to make it under 500euros till Hobart, you'll have to make a lot of research. The route to Kupang quoted by Klemencja is close to those 500euros and it's still a long way till Hobart.
An option would be to fly with Pegasus from Milan to Dubai (changing planes in Istambul), then look for a flight from Dubai to Singapore, Kuala Lupur or Bangkok (take a look at Skyscanner or Kayak to see what's the cheapest option on your travel date), then look for a flight from Singapore, Kuala Lumpur or Bangkok to Melbourne (take a look at Jetstar and Air Asia) and finally a flight from Melbourne to Hobart (e.g.: with Jetstar or Tiger Airways). You could be able to make it with less than 600 Euros. Not sure if you could be able to make it with less than 500 though.

6Where do you want to stop on the way?
Anillos' suggestions will probably be the cheapest.But do you want to stop in Dubai,Kl and Melbourne?
If you spend a few days in Dubai and a few in Melbourne you will quickly lose all the money that you saved from the cheaper flights ;-)
I would base it on what you want to see on the way (and how much those places will cost) rather than on getting the cheapest flight.

7thanks to everyone for your replies!
i guess i would prefer some cozy places in indonesia and malaysia (or anywhere arround there) where i could surf and dive for a week or so.. i am not really overwhelmed by either dubai, kuala lumpur or singapore.. everybody s talking about how bali is the place to go but i am afraid it might be crowded with tourists at that time... just as all the other places might be so it may not be an obstacle...
i kind of like this idea of Klemencja about goging to jakarta and to Milan - Jakarta and then somewhere arround... perhaps to kupang? as a matter of facet i really know nothing about any of the places over there so i really have no idea about what is cool place to go and what is not.. (for surfing and/or diving, preferably cheap and with nice people arround... i know.. too many conditions). maybe you have some suggestions?
also, i dont know how much would it cost me to get from such a place to australia and to hobart finally.. maybe the nice place isnt necessarily a flight hub?
i might go over 500 as i see.. but would still like to keep my budget as low as possible..
thanks again for your replies!
