How far in advance to book my hotels and internal flights ?

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip to Australia from 10th May till 24th May 2015. Broad itinerary is as below :
10th May : Arrive at Melbourne in morning; 2 nights in Melbourne
12th May : Leave by rented car on GOR; night at Port Campbell
13th May : GOR drive continued; night near Melbourne airport
14th May : Fly to Cairns in morning; 4 nights in Port Douglas
18th May : Fly to Ayers Rock; 2 nights at Uluru
20th May : Fly to Sydney; 4 nights at Sydney
24th May : Fly back home

Questions:
1. How far in advance should I book my internal flights in Australia (Mel-Cairns, Cairns-Uluru and Uluru-Syd) ? Any recommended airline ? Do fares go up sharply if I leave it for later ?

2. How far in advance to book my hotels ?

3. Any critique on amount of time I propose to spend at each destination ?

Look forward to hearing from everyone. Thanks in advance.
