3 weeks in Aus in March

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I will be flying into Melbourne on Mar 1 and have three weeks to plan before we leave. Haven't decided where we will fly out of because I know things aren't close together.

So far all we know is we will be doing a shark cage experience in Pt. Lincoln but we haven't booked it yet as we don't know how much time we should spend in melbourne first, if we should fly or drive to get there, etc...

We are interested in sightseeing, nature, animals, and things unique to Aus. Also, snorkeling, seeing the reef, etc...

We are under a moderate budget - understanding things are expensive and will likely go the most cost efficient route possible without missing out on anything especially important. We are not major foodies and fancy restaurants, shows etc. are not a priority.

we are open to flying and driving, camping and hotels, hiking, scenic drives, exploring towns, etc. Really not much limiting us except the fact that we will be in completely unfamiliar territory.

What do you advise for the most memorable experiences while we are there? What cities/towns and for how long? Flying or driving from place to place? Should we stop over in Tasmania? Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks!
