Flying to Croatia from Australia:

Getting to Croatia from Australia requires an average flying time of 30 hours with two stops made en route. Some of the quicker air options are with Emirates and British Airways. As connection times can vary widely you may wish to consider stopping over in London for a few nights and picking up a cheap flight to Croatia with Wizz Air or easyJet. These budget airlines offer great airfares when booked in advance and are best booked directly online via the official websites. As these budget airlines also offer direct routes from Croatia to popular European capitals like Paris and Rome, you may wish to combine your Croatia tour with a larger trip around Europe.
