Australian Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

We are planning our first trip to Australia. We are looking at traveling beginning of July since my son is in college and has limited availability. I know this is not the ideal time of year but it is only time available.

I am a 55 year old woman traveling with my 21 year old son. We like any kind of sightseeing (interesting things to see) on land or water. I am not much of a swimmer so any sights to see in water has to be from a boat or another viewing platform. We like short walks (1-2 miles) but no real hike.

I know its limiting but we will only be taking public transportation (and maybe an occasionally day tour).

I was looking at a map of Australia and was quite overwhelmed with everything so I am hoping to get some help with the initial planning so I have a place to start. The only place I know we want to go is Melbourne in order to visit Philips Island as my son has loved Penguins his entire life so I figured this was a must. Anything else is open for consideration.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
