Hi just want some advice please. Been to oz before did Darwin cairns and sydney. My friend lives South Of Brisbane but it seems the flights are more expensive direct to brisbane than e.g. Sydney. As I'm in my 50s it is harder to contemplate a direct flight due to the long flight time, but i would like to do an Asian stop over , e.g. Hong Kong and maybe go to melbourne too. But while some of the airlines stop off on the way to the likes of hong kong it may only be for a few hours. Any suggestions/tips on how to get a couple of days stopover and some movement within australia at the most reasonable cost. I'm a lone flyer.
