30 Day Australia Itinerary Feedback

Jump to last reply

We are a 60+ couple planning our first visit (a 5 week trip) to Australia next Sept. We've put together the following itinerary and would appreciate feedback. Are we spending the correct number of days in each place. Would you change anything?
Also, we are thinking of renting a car in Cairns/PD. Is it easy to get around the area with a car or should we just arrange tours and leave the driving to others there? We are not scuba divers or snorkelers but would like to see the reef via boat, helicopter or balloon. We want to visit the Daintree and Cape Tribulation area and also Kuranda as well as have a few days on the beach.

Sydney 6 days (7 nights) with a day trip to the Blue Mountains while here
Port Douglas - fly from Sydney to Cairns (4-1/2 days) (5 nights)
Cairns - 2 days/nights
Brisbane - Fly from Cairns to Brisbane (2-1/2 days) (3 nights)
Melbourne - Fly from Brisbane (2-1/2 days) (3 nights)
P/U car in Melbourne and drive the GOR (4 nights) stopping at Apollo Bay, Port Fairy, Robe, Victor Harbor
Drive to Cape Jervis and take ferry to Kangaroo Island (3 full days and 4 nights); plan to spend first night in Kingscote, the next 2 nights in Flinderchase NP and the last night in Penneshaw
Return to Cape Jervis and drive to the Adelaide hills, visit Hahndorf and area; return to Adelaide
2 nights in Adelaide; fly to Sydney late afternoon for airport stay before return to US.
