First Time to Australia-eyes bigger than stomach?

Jump to last reply

This will be our first trip to Oz and I need some advice. My husband and I will have 19 full days to spend and I have come up with this itinerary. I fear I am trying to do too much. Is this nuts?
Arrive Sydney Oct 29
3-4 nights in Sydney
Fly to Hamilton Island and then 3 nights at Paradise Bay Eco Resort.
Fly to Cairns from Hamilton Island.
3 nights Pt. Douglas area.
Fly Cairns to Adelaide.
2 nights Flinders Ranges (Rawnsley Park Station)
4 nights Adelaide Hills/Barossa Valley.
2 nights Kangaroo Island.
Fly to Sydney for final night.
Fly home Nov 17.
Are we spending too much time in the wine country (we are winos/oenophiles). Is Flinders worth the travel time? We would like to see wildlife, should we go to Tasmania instead of KI?
Please give me your opinions.
Thank you
