My husband and I are planning our first visit to Australia, thanks to a conference being held in Sydney. We shall therefore be in Sydney for a week and then have three weeks holiday. We are both happiest being in a place and just soaking up the atmosphere and we also enjoy walking/cycling/bird & animal 'spotting'. However, as this will most probably be our once in a life time trip, we want to see different areas and get an impression of the 'best of Ausieland' . I'm not sure if I have a realistic idea of distances and would welcome comments and suggestions. Many thanks to anyone who has time to consider this.
Week 1: Friday to Friday Sydney & conference (so mostly work but some play)
Friday pick up a rental car in Sydney and drive to Blue mountains NP. Return to Sydney on Sunday or Monday and fly to Adelaide
2 days in Adelaide exploring city.
Pick up rental car and drive to Flinders Ranges NP and stay for 2 or 3 days. Drive back to Adelaide and continue to Kangaroo Island, also stay for 2 days. Drive the GOR to Melbourne in 3 days. Spend a day in Melbourne and then fly to Cairns. Combine last week with Barrier Reef and Daintree NP. Return flight to Sydney for return flight home.
Is this feasible in 22 days? Does it sound like a great holiday ??
