2 wks in Aus - need help with itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hi, we are planning to be in Australia for 2 wks in July. We are flying in and out of Sydney and would like to do Cairns and either Uluru/Alice Springs/Kings Canyon or Byron Bay/Coffs Harbour/Nelson Bay. We are traveling with two kids, who are fairly good with travel, but would prefer places where there is enough to keep them busy - hikes/beaches etc. Our initial itinerary is below and we are leaning towards Byron Bay/Coffs Harbour/Nelson Bay. Would like your feedback on the itinerary and also whether it would be better to stay in Cairns or Whitsunday islands? Also, we are trying to avoid moving every night as we get back from Cairns, so please advise on what would be a good point to break in between and do day trips from. Is it also possible to visit Fraser Island with this itinerary without adding too much of a drive?

day 1: land in sydney, sydney city tour for day 1 and 2

day 3- blue mountains/Katoomba : not sure whether to drive or do a tour company

day 4 - fly to cairns

day 5, 6, 7, 8 - Cairns (Green Island, GBR, Daintree, Kuranda)

Day 9 - Fly from Cairns to Brisbane/Byron Bay and rent a car : whats a good place to make a base rather than jump around?

Day 10 - Byron Bay

Day 11 - Coffs Harbour and Dorrigo National Park

Day 12 - Drive to Nelson Bay and explore there

Day 13 - Drive from Nelson Bay to Sydney

Day 14 and 15 - Spend in Sydney



thanks in advance
