Sydneysiders can escape to the Gold Coast for as low as $49 one-way, while Melburnians can soak up the warm weather on the Sunshine Coast for $75 one-way.
There are also deals on offer for Queenslanders, including flights from Brisbane to the Whitsundays for $59 one-way, and Brisbane to Cairns from $69 one-way.
Acting Premier Steven Miles said Queensland was calling Aussies and Kiwis to come and enjoy the Sunshine State.
“Whether it’s snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef, walking through a world-heritage rainforest, experiencing the outback or enjoying a meal or drink at one of Queensland’s best venues, it's easy to see why Queensland is Australia’s favourite destination,” Miles said.
