3 weeks in Aus and NZ - help needed for itinerary!

Jump to last reply

I am due to change jobs in April, so will have about 3 weeks off in which to travel. I am keen to go to Aus and NZ (I am in Asia so not too far away).
I have been to west coast - ie Perth and Margaret River, which I loved. I really want to see Sydney and Melbourne on this trip and if I manage Ayers Rock.

For NZ, I know nothing. Reading these forums I see most people say the south is the most beautiful. The problem is I will be on my own, so am uncertain about whether I would want to drive for days on end on my own (more for company than security!). I would love to do a trian trip, and see there are some possibilities.
It would be nice to join a tour for, say 7 days, but most seem really expensive or longer or involve camping (I am not very intrepid, although I love the outdoors). A tour might be more fun and enable me to cover more distance than if I travelled on my own.
Any ideas for how to manage either Aus or NZ would be really helpful...I was really excited about it all, but now am a bit worried I wont be able to do all this or organise all this on my own.
I have travelled extensively before in Asia and Europe, but this seems more daunting as the distances are much bigger.
Any ideas much appreciated!
