Cheap flights to Canada
Do I need a visa?
All Australian citizens are required to apply for a Canadian eTA visa prior to arrival in Canada. The eTA visa is good for general travelling for stays of up to 90 days, and it’s required even if you just have a stopover in Canada! Thankfully, the process is super easy—apply online and in most cases, you’ll get approval in just a few minutes. The eTA visa costs about $7 AUD, but it’s good for up to five years and can be used for multiple entries into Canada.
Things to do in Canada
Places to visit in Canada
Canada is huge, so you won’t be able to get it all done in one trip. Wondering where to begin? Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, and Montreal are some of Canada’s most famous—and popular—cities. Head to Toronto to see the world-renowned Niagara Falls. Looking for a more urban vibe? Montreal’s French-inspired culture will give you plenty of reasons to fall in love with Canada.
Food in Canada
You’ll find some similarities between Canadian food and food in the States, but there are some must-try signature Canadian dishes too. Poutine is at its best in Quebec (its birthplace). And be sure to eat as many breakfast foods as possible so you can fully appreciate Canadian maple syrup and bacon. Of course, popular dishes vary widely depending on where in Canada you are—if you’re in Montreal or Nova Scotia, you’ll want to try some of the seafood dishes, like Nova Scotian Lobster Rolls. Near Vancouver? Pick up some Nanaimo bars for a sweet treat.
Fun fact: Canada has 60% of the world’s natural lakes, meaning that there’s tons of beautiful outdoor landscapes to explore. Start in Vancouver or Calgary for hiking, skiing, backpacking and more. These cities are surrounded by mountains, lakes, forests, including Canada’s oldest national park, Banff National Park.
Canada has several major airports, including Montreal (YUL), Vancouver (YVR) and Toronto (YYZ). Flying into one of these airports will connect you directly with some of Canada’s biggest cities. Once you land, you might want to consider renting a car. Although you’ll find public transportation within big cities, you’ll need a car if you’re planning on visiting several places—or if you want to head to a National Park.
