How many days in Sydney and Melbourne

Jump to last reply

Hi All,
I am planning a trip to Sydney and Melbourne in second half of August (I know its gonna be cold). To be honest, i really haven't done any homework and was hoping that folks here could be of some help.

I have flexibility to keep my trip duration anywhere between 7-14 days, based on how many days most people suggest I should stay. I am mostly interested in all typical sight seeing adventures. I am not the highest fan of spending hours on beach. I like to visit beaches, hang out just for a while and then move on.

I will be traveling alone (35 yr old male), will not be driving anywhere and would reply mostly on public transportation.

Any help on duration, what to do, tips on public transportation or things that I should not miss will really really help.

Apologies for being so generic and looking for a lot of information.
