I am planning now for trip to both --not sure how many days in each yet. .still feeling out what we want to see. We are for sure going to spend about 5 days in Melbourne to see the Australian Open and also see some of Melbourne.. from there initially thought to go to Queensland --wanted to see the great barrier reef but then read how that is the worst time to go north because of all the rain.. so not sure what to do now.. we are nature lovers, not into extreme sports.. really just want to see the top most beautiful natural sites of both countries
Not looking to do long days of driving.. my H can drive on the left a he has in the past but does not love it and can't really see much when you are the driver.. where we need to we will drive
Interested in great barrier reef, fiordsland, franz josef glaciers --things like that.. some of the beautiful spots seen in Lord of the RIngs. We like to hike but day hikes not overnight..
If you could recommend the tops places to see as this may be our one and only time to visit as we are coming a long way.. and are an "older" couple (will be 60 and 67 at time of trip) in fairly good shape..
We should have about 21--24 days depending upon my boss:)
