BELLEVUE, Wash.—(September 23, 2011)—For U.S. travelers looking for international alternatives to spending another bone-chilling winter in the States, the Southern States of Australia offer the best value for a warm-weather holiday vacation Down Under.

Down Under Answers (, is expecting more travelers from Florida, Georgia, Alabama, and the Carolinas to take advantage of the company’s new “Southern Splendor” ( vacation offerings as a result of Qantas Airways’ recently launched non-stop from Dallas Forth Worth to Brisbane.

“The new route to Brisbane has essentially made it easier to access the southern states of Australia from the U.S.,” explains Kirk Demeter, Down Under Answers President and CEO. “Before the Dallas to Brisbane route was introduced, travelers from the Midwest and Eastern U.S. would have to first fly to Los Angeles before boarding their onward flight to Australia. Now, travelers have a convenient international gateway from the U.S. that offers additional seating capacity to Australia to connect with flights to regional Australia.”

The DUA “Southern Splendor” vacation packages include such getaways as a 12 night air and land inclusive vacation from $2,599 per person U.S.

Demeter went on to say, “The Southern States of Australia are the most lush and scenic part of the country, and offer the greatest value and experiences for travelers. Packages like these with options for travel through much of the peak season are not often seen.
