We just booked our tickets to Australia! Trip of a lifetime for us. I'm looking forward to perusing the forum while planning. So little time though! Outside of our travel days we will have only 11 days of actual time in Australia. Flying into Cairns and out of Sydney. We are in the process of deciding whether to fly from Cairns to Sydney or drive over a few days stopping at other sites between along the way. Quite expensive to drop off the car in Sydney - but we are a family of four, so it may not be that much of a difference price wise. We are also in the process of figuring out our list of must do's then paring it down. Not really a question right now. Just sharing my excitement!
