2 days in Brisbane (partly to get over jet lag as we will be travelling from Dubai)
1 day Lamington National Park
1 day Gold Coast
2 days Byron Bay
3 days Byron Bay to Sydney
4 day Sydney, including the Blue Mountains
5 days Sydney to Melbourne along the coast road including Philip Island and Dadenong Mountains
3 days in Melbourne
I'm concerned that we may feel that we spent all the time driving rather than seeing anything. Also, I'd like to travel the Ocean Road out from Melbourne but we don't have time.
I'm considering flying from Sydney to Melbourne and losing out on the drive between them, although we would still take a day trip to Philip Island.
Has anyone got any advice or faced a similar dilemma?
