We are in our 50's, love to travel, and are spending 6 weeks in Auz. starting early Jan. Our first week will be rest and relaxation, recouping from jet lag and work, and of course we will want to explore the city and area we are in.
After that, we will fly to Cairns and take our time driving to Sydney, leaving the last week to explore Sydney.
For the first week, would you suggest Adelaide or Melbourne?
Thanks for any input.
