Sydney - Melbourne - Tasmania


I was hoping you could give me some advice on what will be happening on the second weekend (from 9 to 11 of March) in Sydney. My friend and I are visiting Australia for the first time and are planning to spend 6 days in Sydney, 7 in Melbs. and 3 in Tasmania.

Some our friends suggested that it would be great to go to the close by islands but I have reviewed almost all of the adds in this forum and did not find anything about that....

Thank you ever so much for your help.

Hi Kalinka

What type of things are you interested in?

Have you read the top questions/FAQ's on the right hand sie of this page? There is information on "must sees" & trip reports from past visitors that may help you plan your visit.

The official Sydney tourism site also has lots of info www.sydney.com/events/search…

What islands are you talking about?

Just bear in mind that the Australian formula1 grand prix is on in Melbourne from the 15 - 18 March. Accommodation will not only be harder to find, but also more expensive.

>>6 days in Sydney, 7 in Melbs. and 3 in Tasmania.<<

Sydney and Melbourne are cities. While there is a lot to see in them, many of the main attractions are in the centre and can be reached by walking or public transport. You could fill a week in each city but you could also reduce that time.

Tasmania is a state. 3 days is not long enough. You could either choose just one of the cities or you could add some days taken from elsewhere. If you want to see more than one city there are tours to specific places or there are buses between towns, but renting a car is the preferred way to travel around Tasmania. You would need more than 3 days to make that worthwhile.

Are you talking about the tropical islands off the state of Queensland? Or are you talking about island nations in the Pacific like Fiji and so on? (Or, dare I ask, are you talking about New Zealand?) Where did you look and what search terms did you use?
