We are arriving in Sydney from Calgary, Alberta Canada on December 22. Since it is Christmas I booked us a hotel in Sydney from 22-26 already but the rest I am trying to figure out. We would also be back in Sydney for our flight out on January 6 (flight at noon on the 7th).
First there are 3 of us. Husband and adult daughter child.
We want to see and do as much as we can within our timeline.
We are movers and shaker type people.
I was thinking the following as a loose itiniary:
Dec 22-26 - Sydney
Fly to Brisbane Dec 26 - 30
Fly to Cairns Dec 30 - 2
Fly to Melbourne Jan 2 - 6
Fly to Sydney Jan 6
Fly home Jan 7
Can someone help?
1. Does this time line/places to fly in/out make sense?
2. Once in Brisbane/Cairns are there tours that will take us to Fraser Island/Great Barrier Reef?
3. May be dumb question but I really know little about Australia...Where do you book trip to head into the Outback? I need to also see a kangaroo in the wild?
4. Christmas in Sydney...what does one do? I heard Bondi beach? Will we be able to get food at the beach for lunch and what about dinner out somewhere (nothing fancy)?
Appreciate any help!
