Tip: If you have to cross at Gongbei into Macau, never do it on a weekend. You'll be sorry......

Thanks everyone for your advice, much appreciated. Have decided to take KVChina advice and fly to zhuhai with china southern airlines. But just a few more questions. Do I need a special visa to enter Macau from China? I will be staying in Macau four nights only. Can I purchase my tickets online on china southern website from Australia?

KvChina is correct, i couldn't image Zhuhai might have flight connection to Xian, although it's a sub-direct flight Zhuhai-Xian with a stopover for the moment at Changsha. Stopover is more easy than connection since you don't need to check in twice.

I just checked it on their website in English. Flight and rate shown. Macau is 30-day visa free to Australia passport holder.

If you're traveling on an Aussie passport, no visa needed for shorter stays in Macau.

Tip: you can book the China Southern flight yourself from Australia but don't use their website--the English user-interface and foreign card payment system isn't that great. Instead, use one of the following that have good English language interfaces and also phone customer service help that you can access from outside and inside China. :

www.travelzen.com (My preference because no 3% surcharge added for using foreign cc).

www.ctrip.com (excellent customer service and lots of help if there are flight irregularities/disruptions)

www.elong.net

For September travel, don't book a domestic China flight too early, definitely not now. Fares and final schedules are loaded into the system on a quarterly basis. So maybe start looking for good fares around mid-July, maybe book by early August.

Is $130 Au one way from Xi An to Zhuhai a good airfare price? Or should I wait until July/August?

If that includes taxes it is a very good price. Normal discount fare is around 1000RMB which is about $Au155.
