3 week Australia Itinerary: Need help

Jump to last reply

My husband(65) and I (53) are veteran travelers. We are not posh but like clean and comfortable. Occasional splurge. We are anglers, snorkelers and love to explore cities and towns. Here is our proposed plan. 3 weeks in October starting the 4th.
Sydney -Days 1-3---Ferries, Botanical Gardens,bridge walk, opera house, fish and chips at Manly, Blue mountains by train/Explorer bus tour(one day).
Cairns/Port Douglas- Day 4 - 8 -Daintree kuranda, Fishing
Whitsundays- Days 9-14- Resort or bareback boat.
Back to Sydney and drive south on Pacific Coast Highway- Days 15 -18-golf , Jervis Bay, fish, explore small beach towns.
Sydney -Days 19-21 -explore

better to be at resort or sail in Whitsundays?
Is Botany Bay worth a trip?
Should we see another big city-Brisbane?
Any suggestions would be appreciated...
