7 Days in Australia, Which 2 cities to visit

Hi,

I will be visiting Australia in Late Oct/Nov'14 and i will be there for 6 nights, 7 days. I have an option to stay 3 nights each in any two of the following cities - Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Gold coast.

Request your suggestions on which two cities should I select and sightseeing, 3 days itinerary options for each city.

Looking forward to your quick reply.

Regards

That really depends on what you want to see and do.. what really interests you... All of those cities have appeal but if you love food and wine and art you might select Adelaide, if you like small cafe's and quirky shops then Melbourne would be a definite. Sydney is wonderful for sightseeing, a must for any international visitor as our harbour is truly beautiful and the Gold Coast is a place of tourists and beaches. If you're not interested in surfing/beaches/theme parks then you'd need to question why you'd visit.

we're all very different people.. and all of those cities have their merit. Why not list your basic details (ie.. are you only using public transport, want to stay in a city hotel or otherwise ..) and also list what you HOPE to see/experience when in Australia and we'd then have a better idea of which destinations are most suited to your a) interests b) physical ability and traveller confidence c) budget and logistics.

Why cities? Some of the best parts of Australia, and much of what makes it unique, are away from the cities.

What do you want to see/experience/do in Australia? What draws you to visit? Answer these questions and you may just find you know where you want to be (if not tell us and we can suggest options that suit your interests).

If it was me: Sydney - Opera house and gardens/Sydney harbour/Darling Harbour/ Bridge Climb/The Rocks/ Shopping/Bondi beach - all quite compact apart from Bondi. Gold coast - beaches beaches beaches, theme parks, shopping.

I have visited Adelaide once and Melbourne multiple times. Melbourne was voted most friendliest live able city. Its got Southbank and the casino, Federation Square, Victoria Markets (with boreks), Botanic gardens area/ Shopping/lousy weather. Enjoy your stay whatever you choose. Cheers, nat

non of those cities can be compared

and they all give access to areas that can't be compared

it would be really beneficial to you to do some research based on what interests you

no one is going to give you a 3 day itinerary just because you can't be bothered doing it yourself
