We are a couple, early 50's from US keen to do a once-in-a-lifetime trip through parts of Australia for about 2 months. We plan to start in Melbourne, spend some time in that area (city, coast, wine, Great Ocean Road). Also interested in Kangaroo Island.This could be a mix of hotels and campervan. Adelaide as well. Then the plan is WA area. We were originally thinking of driving there (campervan) but that seems to long so fly? Then to the NT for Darwin, Kakadu etc. Also thought of driving that , but again seems to long. Continue to Alice and Uluru.
I'm interested in opinions concerning mode of travel and if this seems like a reasonable plan. Does it make sense to fly between the major areas then rent a campervan to travel around. Are any of the big train trips worth the high cost?
Thanks in advance. This seems like a great forum.
