Australia to New Zealand for cheap

edited January 2009 in - General Australasia
If I am on an extended holiday in Australia and want to jet over to New Zealand for a few days what is the cheapest way to do this? Are there cheap air tickets? Do i need an extra visa? Is this really feasible for a cheap quick weekend trip?

    Virgin Blue or Qantas and Air New Zealand all do services from mostly East Coast Australia to Auckland or Christchurch daily and booked early enough you can get some good fares. Flights are about 3 and a half hours in duration. So very possible for a weekend. Some Australian Travel agents may be able to offer a weekend break package with flights and accommodation.
    If you are a British passport holder you can enter NZ without a visa.
