Many major air-lines fly to Australia. Depending on whether you want a direct flight and when you buy the ticket, prices can vary considerably, so it pays to do your research beforehand. One way to start is by contacting the major airlines or using various flight scanners online.
In addition, many international cruise ships visit cities throughout Australia (peak season is during summer). There may be opportunities to take tours and rejoin the ship at a later point in time or stay longer and fly back home.
