Johannesburg (or Jo’Burg to the locals), is the heart of South Africa and an exciting destination for any visitor with our cheap flights from Australia.

It may be a little full on, but Johannesburg is an excellent city to visit, with plenty to see and do.

For a look into the country’s history, the Apartheid Museum is a must, or for jaw-dropping views of the cityscape, head up to the 50th floor of the Carlton Centre where there’s a viewing platform where you take in the sights from above.

South Africa is also well known for its sport, so why not try and catch a rugby match at Ellis Park, home to the Lions, Golden Lions, and South African national team.

For more history, check out Constitution Hill, which is home to the prison where activists such as Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi have been held throughout the years. Now it’s home to the city’s Constitutional Court.

And after a long day, there are plenty of trendy bars to hang out in, or you could head out into the townships for live music and cheap drinks.

Check out our full range of cheap flights from Australia to Johannesburg below, including first class and business class flights.
