Australia in August = Confused?!

Jump to last reply

Hey guys,

My girlfriend and I are planning to head down to Melbourne in August (we're in early 30's and from India). Now, I know it's winter down under but August is the only time off we got and we've been wanting to do Australia for a while.

We have around 2 weeks and after discussing/debating various options, we're very confused. Both love food and oceans and culture, and driving, however, even after crawling the web for days we haven't been able to lock a plan down. So my questions are these:

1. Is winter in Australia a complete bummer? Better going some place else?

2. Apart from driving down to GOR (we haven't driven in snow before but very good drivers otherwise), what else could we try around Melbourne?

3. Girlfriend wants to do Sydney, I want to drive there, stopping off along the way but will we waste too much time and have nothing left for Sydney?

4. Current rough plan looks like this:
- 3 days Mel
- 2 days GOR
- 3 days Syd

Help??!!
