“That’s why Virgin Australia is excited to announce the Wander out West sale, offering one-way Economy fares to Perth from as low as $149.

“Virgin Australia understands its role in connecting communities and supporting the tourism industry around the country recover from COVID-19, and this sale is proof of that commitment.”
