Choosing Tasmania or Perth/ Margaret River

Jump to last reply

We are from Canada and going to Australia for 6 weeks Sept/Oct. and then 4 weeks New Zealand( mostly South Island)
So far we are flying to Sydney- 2 days there, then flying to Hamilton Islamd and chartering a crewed sailboat in Whitsundy's for 4 nights. Then fly to Cairns to see admin tree and snorkel in Port Douglas for 5 days. Then fly to Uluru -2 nights there, 1 night Kings Canyon , 1 night Alice Springs.
Now we are trying to decide whether to go to Perth/ Margaret River or to go to Tasmania as we have 4 days extra before going to Brisbane, Gold Coast , Noosa, Harvey Bay , Fraser Island , Byron Bay , fly to Melbourne to drive the great ocean road for 4 days , Adeleide 2 nights, Kangaroo island 1 night , Tunanda 1 night . Fly to Syney . 2 days to see more Syney and Blue Mountains before flying to Aukland.
We are very active 59 year olds. Love the outdoors. Not big on cities but love quaint and unusual experiences. Love to drink wine along the way but not a huge focus.
Can anyone recommend whether we might enjoy Perth/ Margaret River area more or Tasmania?

Thanks for your help. We hadi Needed to go to and Bungle Bungkes but it is getting too late , hot and wet for that area we have discovered.
