I am thinking of going to the Open in January and I need some help in planning a tour of Australia including 3 or 4 days in Melbourne for the open. I am thinking of leaving the States on the 4th of January and return around the 25th of January. I would like to get a feel for the country. I know Sydney is a must and I hear the Gold Coast is nice. Do anybody have any input on what an itinerary should like? We plan on going to the early matches around the 14th. All input will help me choose the places to visit before I talk to a travel agent.
