Fine-tuning advice re pre/post-cruise destinations in Australia please

Jump to last reply

We will be travelling to Australia in October with a large group to spend 3 days in Sydney, followed by a cruise from Sydney to Newcastle, Cairns, Port Douglas, Willis Island, Airlie Beach and Brisbane.

Before and/or after travelling with the group we will be on our own, and would like to see more of Australia. We will only have about 10 extra days. I am having trouble narrowing down our options, but the following areas look interesting to me so far:

- The area close to Sydney - the Blue Mountains and Hunter Valley
- Adelaide, and the wine region in that area
- Kangaroo Island
- Ulura and Alice Springs
- Tasmania

We are in our mid sixties and are pretty seasoned travellers, and have learned not to jump around too much from place to place. We love good food and wine, and although we are in pretty good shape, usually don't go much for the physical adventure type of travel.

We would be most appreciative for any feedback or recommendations regarding my "wish
list". I realize that we will only be able to do 1 or 2 of these.

Thank you so much!!
