Best things to do and see in Peru

Flights to Peru from Australia take anywhere from 24 to 34h, though some can be longer. Regardless of your Australian departure city, the total travel time depends mostly on the number of stops along the way and the duration of those stops. From Sydney (SYD), most flight deals come with two stops along the way. Flights to Peru departing from Melbourne (MEL) generally come with at least two stops, and some itineraries have three stops. Average flight times from Melbourne sit at around 31 to 32h. If you are departing from Brisbane (BNE), you'll likely also have a minimum of two stops along the way. However, some two-stop itineraries offer a relatively short travel time of around 26h in total. Your first stop in Peru will be the capital of Lima (LIM), so if you plan to visit Arequipa (AQP), Cusco (CZ), or another region, this will add to your total travel time.

While there are no non-stop flights to Peru from Australia, you may be able to find single-stop itineraries with airlines like Qantas, LATAM, and Sky. Though they are not non-stop flights, these airfares generally come with the shortest available flight times. From Sydney, that means around 24 to 26h, stopping in Los Angeles (LAX) or Santiago (SCL) before reaching Lima, Peru. Other major airports like Melbourne and Brisbane generally offer Peru flight deals with at least two stops along the way. Many of these flights are serviced by Qantas, and common stopover cities include Sydney, Santiago, and Auckland (AKL).

You have quite a few options for getting around Peru, including buses, trains, boats, and domestic flights. If you're travelling on a tight budget, buses are generally the most economical way to get around, and the bus network is also the most comprehensive transport option. Buses go between major hubs like Lima and Cusco but also head out to small beach towns like Huanchaco and villages like Puno. Some spots in this mountainous country, however, are not accessible by bus. Iquitos, for example, is a jungle-bound city that's only accessible by plane or boat. Similarly, if you wish to visit the islands in Lake Titicaca, a boat will be your best option. For a unique view of Peru's jungles and mountain peaks, you may consider travelling by train. There are two main railway lines – the Central Railway and the Southern Railway. Popular trips include Lima to Huancayo and Cusco to Machu Picchu. It's important to keep in mind that train travel is generally sold as a novelty experience rather than as a convenient mode of transport, and you can expect a bumpy ride. For convenience, flights, buses, and boats are the favoured means of transport in Peru.

Australian citizens do not need a visa for visits to Peru for up to 180 days for tourism purposes. Instead, you need to get a permit upon arrival. The main thing you'll need is a passport with at least six months' validity and at least one blank page for entry and exit stamps. Proof of a departing ticket will probably also be a requirement for entry to Peru. If you believe the 180-day tourist visa does not match your purpose of travel or your intended length of stay in Peru, you should contact your nearest Peruvian embassy or consulate to determine the right course of action and apply for the relevant visa.
