Cairns or Melbourne? Trip Feedback

Jump to last reply


Due to life we have had to cancel our perfectly planned nz/oz trip that was suppose to be 3 weeks in August.

We are now thinking of going during Christmas. It not ideal but it's the only option.

We are planning to do 5/6 in new zealand to see auckland and Queenstown. Then 5 days for Sydney including a day trip to the Blue Mountains. I'm unsure what to do for the remaining 4 days. Our options are Melbourne aka see the Great Ocean Road or Cairns or Whitsunday (which wasn't part of the original plan). Any advice?

Any new years advice? See it in Queenstown or Sydney? I know we'll have to book hotel asap either way
