Around the world travel

Hi,

We are planning a 6 week trip around the world in November. We have to go to Vancouver, but also want to visit Australia and Hong Kong. We are looking for flights and accommodation, and most important, suggestions of where to go in Australia. We are in our 50's, but sporty and out door people. I would love a 'secret' hide away by the sea or a lake for a few days. We have relatives in Perth and Gold Coast. Is the coral reef outside Perth worth a visit? Our budget, including everthing, is £5000.-

Thanks, Anette

Agreed with the previous comment - your budget will probably just about only cover your flights!

I missed the edit window....

Places to go in Australia depend on what you want to see. It's an enormous place, do some reading about the various places and see what catches your fancy. Going on someone else's holiday is rarely a winner.

If you are traveling coach you will probably get two airline tickets for about $3,500 to $4,500 USD. Since you said you want to do North America, Australia and Asia as part of your adventure the cost will be closer to $4,500 USD if not a little higher.

To be economical you may find dropping Austalia from your itinerary to be prudent.

Good luck with your travel plans.

suggestions of where to go in Australia.

Post in the Australia forum, not here for that please.

Per person? That *might* work, just about.

But for both of you ... well lets see; 6 weeks = 40 days give or take (simpler maths), allow £100 a day for hotel and food and attractions (very low I'd have said), thats £4,000 right off the bat, which leaves you £500 each for round the world flights ... nope, not going to happen, sorry.
