Just wanted to get some expert thoughts on my proposed itinerary when we travel to Australia in Oct/Nov this year.
Travelling with my husband and 3yo son - he is a pretty good traveller (my son that is!!) We will be there for 24 days.
We arrive into Melbourne from Sinapore on 30 Oct, was going to spend 3 nights there. Then hire a motorhome (kea 4 berth with shower/toilet? is this best) and drive the Great Southern Touring Route to Adelaide (3/4 nights). Spend a night in Adelaide and then fly to Cairns. Spend 4 nights in Cairns then fly to Brisbane. Spend about 2 nights in Brisbane and then either hire a car and either use hotels, or go for a motorhome again? We would be heading for Sydney - stopping off at Byron Bay, Coffs Harbour, Port Macquarie. Def want to take in Blue Mountains and Hunter Valley if possible but not sure where how best to fit it in. We leave sydney for Dubai on 23 Nov.
Had planned to take a day trip to BM or would it be better to stay over in BM for a night.
Our budget isn't tight, but want any costs to be a reasonable one. I priced a motorhome for 5 days for $1600aud (kea 4 berth shower/toilet) not sure if this is reasonable - as travelling with 3 yo son want to make sure its safe, clean and comfortable.
I have used the links in other posts to get info on parks to stay at etc, which has been very valuable.
Any comments, suggestions welcome.
