Getting from Sydney to Bali

Bali is a South Pacific island that draws in the tourists like no other. And, now, with the whole “Eat, Pray, Love” epidemic sweeping across the world, it is even more popular, not just with Australians, but with those traipsing the globe on quick and long holidays. This Indonesian island is almost like paradise with a brilliant climate, colorful surrounds and lots of ocean.

Getting from Sydney to Bali by Plane

Going from island to island in the South Pacific is best done by plane, and there are plenty of flights from Sydney to Bali to choose from. Flights from Sydney to Denpasar (the capital of Bali) run 2 to 3 times per day, depending on the day of the week, on either Jetstar, Virgin Australia or Garuda Indonesia. This route will run about 6 hours and 40 minutes from Sydney (4623 kilometers), but the shortest route from Australia would be from Darwin.

Quick search flights to Denpasar (DPS) from Sydney (SYD), Melbourne (MEL) and Brisbane (BNE):

Getting from Sydney to Bali by Boat

Most of the time, getting there is half the journey, and this definitely applies to the trip from Sydney to Bali. Being both islands, you can bet there are cruises (if you don’t have your own boat, of course) that can take you from Australia to Bali. Some of the companies going this route include P&O Cruises and Regent, but you can have a look for more possibilities on the cruising Australia page.

Cruising from one location to the next is a completely different experience – one that is usually more important than those port of calls. And, it is wise to note that if you are taking a cruise, chances are your stop at the final destination might be quite minimal. If you’re wanting a good time away, at a cheaper price, a budget flight to Bali is the recommended method.
