I'll be travelling on my own to Australia next year, staying in Hotels and apartments, don't think backpacking is for me.
I also don't drive, so won't be able to hire a car unfortunately.
For the first 5 nights (11th-16th) I'm staying in Melbourne to see the Australian Grand Prix and the final week 21st-28th I'm staying with family in Sydney.
The quandary I have is how to fill the 5 nights (16th-21st) of my holiday I have remaining? My original plan was to fly to Cairns and stay for 3 nights, seeing the Great Barrier Reef and all the attractions and then flying to Ayer's Rock (Uluru) to see the sights there before flying back to Sydney to visit my family in Sydney…does this sound like a good itinerary?
My only reservation with that itinerary is that maybe I'd be spending too long in each location. My Plan 'B' would be to spend 1 night in Adelaide, fly to Cairns and spend 2 nights there and then spend 1 night in Uluru before flying to Sydney?
Also, will all these places be easy to get around and readily accessable for someone that doesn't drive? I'm quite into cycling so could cycle to some places if the distance is relatively short?
Thank you very much in advance for any replies.
