bucket list for my australia trip

Jump to last reply

I've posted here prior re: places to stay, etc. for my 4 week trip.

MY base will be in Campbelltown, NSW (i will be spending time at UWS) as I have a rate for 836/4 weeks. Will be traveling after work to Sydney to explore. I don't have my schedule of work yet, but it should not be longer than 3 weeks of 4 days and that leaves a week at the end of my 28 days in Australia.

I've created a bucket list of things to do divided by area. I hope to get to all.

Sydney: bridge climb, ferry to manly, zoo, opera house tour, bondi beach and walk to bronte, blue mnt/3 sisters. I prob would take a day tour to the blue mnts.
Melbourne: great ocean road tour/12 apostles, phillips island (i would use tours for both) and possible grampians.
Uluru: sunrise, aborigine tour, sunset/sounds of silience
Cairns or port douglas (leaning towards Port Douglas): snorkel the reef with wavelength (i think they only snorkel), go to daintree, beach in port douglas, kuranda.

others i might do/add in: Sydney aquarium or tower, explore rocks, manly to split walk, olgas, featherdale wildlife park, Australia museum, considering a drive with a tour along bloomfield track to cooktown or a guarabi tour, but that is unlikely.

i thought of signing up for some APT day tours to get some of these items.

thoughts?

thanks

appreciate all the help.
