I've been hired to speak in Sydney in September and October. I have 2 weeks in between speaking events to travel. I will be there with my husband, we're mid-30s and have no kids.
I was thinking of flying to the Gold Coast (found a great deal for a 4 star on Travel Zoo) for 5 nights. I love the sound of Uluru but it really looks far. We're looking for amazing places and experiences but recognize we don't have much time.
A bit more information - we're not big into doing touristy things. One of our best memories in travel was going to a b&b in Umbria, Italy and having dinner around a harvest table with couples from all over the world.
Any recos on where we should go would be appreciated.
