1st Australian Trip - History, Culture, Flora & Fauna to See?

Jump to last reply

In the first two weeks of September I will be visiting Australia for the first time. I'm a single female traveller of moderate fitness (I can do tons of walking and I'm a good horseback-rider, but I'm definitely not an athlete). I'm interested in getting a taste of the country in 11-12 days that will help me get a sense of the place and set the stage for my eventual return.

I don't really swim, so I'm not going to snorkel or scuba dive, but I do enjoy being on the water. I am most interesting in the culture, history and the flora & fauna. I'm assuming an intro to Sydney is the way to start, but then I want to see something else - perhaps part of the outback or a visit to the Maori.

But what do you suggest?
