We are a family with 2 teenagers (12,13 in the summer of 2011).
We are planning to tour Australia and we have net of 32 days in the country.
Due to lack of time and season, we decided to have the following itinerary and I would appreciate your knowledge and experience.
It is NOT a backpacking trip, we are going to use a rental car and flights and we are NOT interested in laying around on the beach (no offence).
Please give us your honest opinion:
24/7/2011 early morning international arrival to Brisbane.
24-27/7 Theme park
27/7 starting North. We thought to cover Brisbane-Cape Tribulation in 17 days.
What is a must????
11/8 (flexible) a flight to Darwin
12/8-22/8 10 days to cover the 2000km betwin Darwin and Uluru
Is it feasible or should we take a day or 2 from the coast
On the way the parks, Alice, Kings Canyon and of course Ayres Rock
22/8 afternoon flight to Sydney
25/8 International flight.
We are a very well travelled family so long drives don't bother us.
How does it look like????
