My wife and I are planning on visiting Australia/New Zealand in May/June 2010. We plan on going for 15 days. Our preliminary plans are:
Chicago to Auckland (5 days)
Auckland to Sydney (5 days)
Sydney to Melbourne (5 days)
Before we settle on this plan we wanted to see what you all thought about this being ample time for each stop. After we get some advice we will then start to fill in the gaps as to activities in all of these places. I know we want to make it to the Great Barrier Reef at some point. I know it's not close to any of the areas we are going to but we will figure that out later. We are totally new to Australia and know NOTHING!!
