Booked our trip for November. Can't wait!

Jump to last reply

Well it's pretty much set now, a 3 week trip Down Under in November focusing on North Queensland and Victoria. This will be the latest of many trips we've made to Australia over the years, but the first time for good friends of ours with whom we'll be traveling. Also, we've never seen that much of Victoria, just a quick trip down the coast between Sydney and Melbourne, and a whirlwind drive along the Great Ocean Rd another time. We've been to North Qld several times - this trip was inspired by a chance to see the total solar eclipse on 14 Nov around Port Douglas. Anyway, here's our itinerary. Would appreciate any input on things to see/do, particularly in Victoria.

Days 1, 2 Sydney (visit relatives)
Day 3 Fly to Melbourne, drive to Apollo Bay (Great Ocean Rd)
Day 4 Apollo Bay
Day 5 Drive to Port Fairie (Great Ocean Rd)
Day 6 Drive to Halls Gap (Grampians)
Day 7 Halls Gap
Day 8 Halls Gap
Day 9 Drive to Melbourne via Ballarat (o'night Melbourne)
Day 10 Fly to Cairns, drive north to Port Douglas
Day 11 Port Douglas (day trip to Mossman Gorge, Cape Trib)
Day 12 Port Douglas. (eclipse in AM, reef trip)
Day 13 Drive inland road to Cooktown
Day 14 Cooktown (Guurrbi tour)
Day 15 Cooktown
Day 16 Drive to Mareeba Wetlands for sunset cruise (o'night Jabiru Safari Lodge)
Day 17 Drive To Undara, o'night
Day 18 Undara tour, drive to Yungaburra on the Atherton Tablelands
Day 19 Yungaburra
Day 20 Drive to Cairns, fly to Sydney
Day 21 Sydney
Day 22 Fly home :-(
