Hubby and I are planning to go to Oz in January, and I'm a bit at a loss.... There's just so much to see and do that I can't seem to be able to streamline my choices! It'll be my first time down under, but my husband's been already, since he has family there. Here are the must-do's that i put in the intinerary.... The blank dates are the ones I need suggestions for :-). Flying in and out of Melbourne.
18/01 arrive melbourne
19-23/01 visiting family in Melbourne
24/01 driving from Melbourne to Sydney. Overnight somewhere along the way
25/01 arrive Sydney
28 fly to uluru
29 -30 red centre
31/01 leave red centre for...?
05/02 return to melbourne
06/02 depart from melbourne
Which leaves us with 4 or 5 days before going back to Melbourne. What would you suggest? I would like to see some wild life, but camping is not an option. Also interested in the outback, native aboriginal culture, and swimming, good food etc. though about going to queensland for the great barrier reef, but heard it'll be stinger season and not possible to swim freely in the ocean at that time of year. Would love to hear your suggestions!
