Are there direct flights to Alaska?

Unfortunately, there are no direct flights from Australia to Anchorage, Alaska (USA), available right now. Most Alaska flight deals from Sydney’s Kingsford Smith Airport stop twice in a variety of US cities, but some from Jetstar have just one stop in Los Angeles (LAX). Flights from Melbourne Avalon Airport also stop twice, most often in Sydney and Los Angeles. Flights from Brisbane Airport also stop twice, in Sydney and Los Angeles.

How do you get from Alaska Airport to the city centre?

The Anchorage Transit number 40 bus departs from the Airport South Terminal every 15min. This trip takes around 22min to arrive in downtown Anchorage and costs roughly A$ 3. Taxis are quicker though more expensive and can be found at both the north and south terminals. These take around 9min and should cost between A$ 23 to A$ 29 dollars. Lyft and Uber are both available so we recommend comparing their prices to the estimated taxi cost if you don't want to take the bus.

What are some things to do in Alaska?

Alaska, USA, is known for its beautiful landscapes and local flora and fauna. These can be taken in on guided hikes, such as the Winter Waterfall Walk and Knik Arm Tour, or nature tours, like Backcountry Eats & Foraging Treats and the Flora and Fauna Nature Walk where you can learn about the local environment. If you'd prefer to take in the sights in more comfort, there's the Alaska Railroad and Alyeska Aerial Tram. If you'd prefer to sit but don't mind being exposed to Anchorage's cold weather, there are also several dog sledding tours available. These are often combined with helicopter rides so you can take in Anchorage's landscapes from above and up close. Indoors, the Anchorage Museum at the Rasmuson Center covers Alaska’s history, culture and local art. It focuses on the indigenous Dena'ina people and includes an interactive area for young children. If you enjoy winter sports, you can check out the Alyeska Ski Area, which has 27 trails of varying difficulty to ski and snowboard on. The International House of Hot Dogs and Wild Scoops ice cream parlour are two popular food destinations for when you need to refuel.
