Dare I Plan? Melbourne - Sydney - Auckland

Jump to last reply

Well, at long last, it appears our trip to Australia and NZ is real. Although, I won't actually believe it until the plane is airborne!

Here is our itinerary (based on my husband's work obligations):

1. Arrive Melbourne evening of October 6th

2. Arrive Sydney afternoon of October 12th

3. Arrive Auckland evening of October 19th

4. Depart for US return evening of October 24th


I've got less than 3 days to get my whole life together, buy a suitcase (old one just broke), and pack. So, I'm open to any and all suggestions for weather and clothing and activities.

About me:

I'm a "walker/hiker" and LOVE nature, beauty and the water. Views - I'm looking for them. BUT, I don't like hanging on the edge of cliffs. If that makes sense?

I also love art museums and visiting gardens.

And I'm a foodie - as in love great food and trying new and interesting cuisine.

I'd rather not rent a car if I don't need to, but I have driven opposite side of the street (years ago in England) if it becomes necessary. I like trains and public transportation.


Mr. Gruezi will likely be working a lot, but will join me for dinner. He will go along with whatever I plan otherwise;) He mostly likes to exercise and eat but is good about tagging along.

I'm at the mercy of this travel board as I won't have time to read any tour books until I board the plane on Saturday.

Thanks to any and all who share your "must sees" and other advice!

Yours,

gruezi
