Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand.

Jump to last reply

I apologize for all my questions, but my life's passion and dream is to travel and this is a travel site is it not? I am in the beginning stages of planning my parent's and my trip to the Down Under. We plan about 3 1/2 weeks doing these 3 countries. I plan on doing 10 days in Austrlia, 5 in Tasmania and a week on New Zealand's South Island. So far I have Australia down pretty well; I have us flying in America's Spring, Australia's Fall. How is the weather in Cairns and Sydney this time of year? I plan on flying into Sydney for 4 days. Doing Syndey itself for one day, The Blue Mountains for one day, Queensland for one day and perhaps one more place. Then flying to Alice Springs and doing Uluru and Kata Tjuta for one day. King's Canyon and Seqioua National Park for 2 days. Then flying to Cairns and staying in town to rest for the night. Then doing the Great Barrier Reef. Next day doing Daintree Rainf Forest. Question though: If I am going to New Zealand's South Island, is Tasmania wortg the extra time? I would like to see Tasmania if it is worth it. We are not really into big towns so we won't spend much time in Hobart or Launcenton besides just for hotel purposes. We would like to see the Bay of Fires, Mt. Wellington. Anything else worth seeing? Then we will fly from Hobart to Christchurch and drive arounf the South Island for a week. Also see Queenstown, Milford and Doubtful sound. Does this sound somewhat reasonable or no? Thanks! Any other sites to see will be greatly obliged.
