VIENNA, VA - Tired of doing the same things over the holiday season? Tired of year after year of wandering from the in-law's to the cousin's to the neighbor's and back home? Roadfly has some ideas that are sure to cure the winter holiday season blahs.

Brisbane, Australia: Paradise on Earth
Home to the infamous Crocodile Hunter, Brisbane is the place to visit if you're in need of a good time. With an exchange rate of 1.75 to 1 (one US Dollar equals 1.75 Australian Dollars) and some of the friendliest people known to mankind, Brisbane is sure to make you forget all about the 15" of snow that's piling up in your driveway.

Sure, airfare is a little pricey (average roundtrip fare from Los Angeles to Brisbane is around $2000 per adult passenger), but once you get to Brisbane, you'll enjoy an incredible vacation at a bargain rate. Brisbane hotels are clean, comfy, modern and relatively inexpensive. During our last trip to Brisbane, we rented an "apartment" that included an in-unit kitchen, dining room, living room, bedroom and bathroom with full laundry for less than $100 USD per night.

Brisbane has beautiful beaches, wonderful shopping (the Queen Street Mall is fabulous), and great food. The people are incredibly accomodating and friendly, and the scenery is like none other. Click over to and book your airfare today. You won't regret it, and you'll quickly forget all about the winter season while you're soaking in the sunlight, swiming in the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean and saying "G'day, Mate" to everyone you meet.
