Excellent fares to Australia, with some bargain fares in the £400s return with China Southern Airlines in May/June this year.
If you’re looking to travel at other times of the year there are also great value fares with 5* rated Cathay Pacific in the £500s return from Gatwick and Manchester.
Some of the China Southern flights have an overnight connection in Guangzhou. You should be able to use the 72 hour visa free transit when you arrive in Guangzhou and it’s likely you’ll get a free hotel night from China Southern Airlines.
All prices are for a return economy flight in UK pounds.

How to Find and Book This Deal
1. Click the relevant Google Flights link in the list above. In Google Flights click the ‘from’ date to see a calendar of prices. Look for dates with the lowest prices. You can change the length of your trip in the bottom left corner of the calendar.
2. Click the relevant Momondo/Kayak/Skyscanner link above (I link to the cheapest one for each search). Search using the dates you found in Google Flights and book with one of the online travel agencies in the search results. The prices should be cheaper here but if they’re not go back to Google Flights and book from there. Why are flights cheaper via Momondo/Skyscanner?
If there’s no link to Momondo/Kayak/Skyscanner above then I recommend you book directly from the links in Google Flights.
