Getting Here

Utah’s capital city, Salt Lake City, has multiple flight options. Many Australians choose to use Los Angeles, San Francisco and Houston, Texas, as their gateway into the United States. Salt Lake City International Airport has daily nonstop flights with all three cities on multiple airlines including Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, and more.

If you would like to visit The Mighty 5® national parks in the south of Utah, it is just an hour and a half drive from Las Vegas to St George. So it is worth considering the Las Vegas International Airport as a great gateway to Utah's beautiful national parks.

For travelers that means lots of open space, breezy and well-maintained interstate highways around the state and a vibrant metropolitan corridor with great public transportation.
