We are arriving in Sydney on 3rd Dec ’13 to Sydney for a 7D6N trip. We are a couple with a 4 year old son. Would appreciate if I can get feedback & tips on the itinerary below. It is our first time in Australia.
Day 1: Arrive from Melbourne in the afternoon - 2pm. Pick up car & check into hotel. We are looking at a hotel around Circular Quay or Woolloomooloo. Rest of the evening spend around the hotel - Opera house (outside only), The Rocks, Sydney Harbour. A ferry ride later in the evening to see the lights. Not planning on any shopping.
Day 2: Check out & leave for Blue Mountains via M4. Stop at Featherdale Wildlife on the way. View Wentworth Falls & Leura Cascades before entering Katoomba. Take a ride to Scenic World. Night at Katoomba - Best Western Alpine Motor Inn.
Day 3: Check out & leave for Jenolan Caves. After this, leave for Port Stephens. We are not into wines, should we stop at Hunter Valley? Rather, will we have time to stop at any of the places in Hunter Valley like the Chocolate/Cheese factory? Check into hotel at Port Stephens. Night at Oaks Pacific Blue Resort/ Comfort Inn Sir Francis Drake.
Day 4: Sand dunes & Dolphin watching. Leave for Sydney in the afternoon. Check into hotel in the evening. Any suggestion where we should stop for the night?
Day 5: Check out & leave for Grand Pacific Drive. Jervis Bay, Kiama Hole & Wollongong. Spend the night at Kiama/Wollongong.
Day 6: Leave for Sydney. Rest of the day at Sydney. Visit Wild Life Sydney.
Day 7: Leave for Singapore.
Is the above doable? Any other sights/must do things that I should add or anything to exclude? Thanks in advance for your help!
