Where We Goin'
Australia here we come! Our 7-week trip from March to
May 2019 will feature:
- 10 days in Sydney
- 10 days in Tasmania
- 10 days in Brisbane & the Great Barrier Reef
- 10 days in Melbourne & Victoria
- 7 days in Uluru & Alice Springs
In every case except Sydney we'll rent a car so we can
explore the area in depth. Here are some details:
Sydney: We'll have 10 full days to explore in and around
this great city. In addition to the obvious sights like the
Opera House and Harbour Bridge we hope to visit Bondi
Beach, Manly Beach, and Taronga Zoo.
Tasmania: We'll hang out in Hobart for 3 days then make
a loop by car for a week to take in as much scenery as
we can, including Port Arthur, Wineglass Bay, Launces-
ton, Cradle Mountain, Strahan, and Lake St. Clair.
Brisbane & Great Barrier Reef: We'll chill out in Brisbane
for 3 days then rent a car for a week to explore the Sun-
shine Coast. A big highlight of the trip will be snorkeling
for 3 days at Lady Elliot Island on the Great Barrier Reef.
Melbourne & Victoria: After 3 days in Melbourne we'll
rent a car for a week to see the 12 Apostles, koalas, and
other sights on the Great Ocean Road. At Wilsons Prom
we hope to see kangaroos, wombats, echidnas, and emu.
Uluru & Alice Springs: We'll rent a car for a week out of
Alice Springs and see the sights in this Outback oasis.
Then we'll drive through the Red Centre and have 3
days to explore iconic Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuta.
This trip to Australia has been a long time in coming --
we've talked about it for 3 or 4 years but it has never
quite panned out -- so we're excited to have tickets
booked and a plan in place.
