I have noticed this as well: so called 'Australia Tax'.

Sorry I should have put in all the details :S

Am looking at trying EK first class from AKL to SYD on a return leg.  If I book through QF website as a separate PNR it comes up as NZD $900 compared to AUD$1000+ if done as part of a return SYD-AKL-SYD.

Why so much cheaper?  Any hidden traps?

There is currently a promotion on EK F originating on NZ.

Thanks for the information.  Just seemed 'too good to be true'.

All tickets are cheaper when bought everywhere outside Australia. Quote any route by any carrier AUS-ANYWHERE-AUS and then ANYWHERE-AUS-ANYWHERE and see

OK thanks.  I know this is extending the question but I am looking at a round-the-world first class bucket list trip.

Am I better doing all this 'off shore' than from Australia?  Any tips?

Being a QC/QFF member oneworld is preferred and tbh from my research already seem to have better options.
