There seems to be an overwhelming amount of wonderful things to do in Australia. We are planning a trip in 2015 and I see suggestions that October may be one of the better times of the year to visit. Since we will be limited to 2-3 weeks for our trip, I've heard staying on the East Coast might be a better choice. Of course we'll start in Sydney and am curious what we should include as other suggested cities? We are interested in a variety of things, outdoors, snorkeling, history, culture, good local food and of course local wine and beer. Appreciate any input you have to offer. Thanks!
