It's been more 15 years since IRON MAIDEN played in Australia for the last time... It was in october 1992, on the Fear Of The Dark Tour. This time they are playing 6 dates in the country, something Asutralian, New Zealanders and other fans coming from far don't want to miss...

But yes, Australia is far and one of the most expensive places to get in the world... Nevertheless, there are some low cost airlines going there, and you'll find that it's possible to get there.

If going from Europe to Australia you have the following options :


- Travel to London
Compare prices from your city to London using WEGOLO price comparer or with Easy Jet or Ryanair.
You can also go by boat from Calais to Dover with
Sea France

- From London you can get to Hong Kong with the low cost international carrier Oasis Airlines for about 300 to 400 € return. Take the 1-hour ferry to Macau.
Then you have 3 options :
The Macau low cost carrier Viva Macau will take you to Sidney
or fly Tiger Airways to Perth via Singapore. This second option is longer but might prove cheaper.
or fly Air Asia to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, and then Air Asia X from KL to Gold Coast in Australia.
