Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning our first trip to Australia. A 14 day (including travel time) trip sometimes in mid-December to mid-January. our preliminary itinerary is:

1. Fly to Cairns and stay in the area for about 6 days.
2. To Sydney and stay for 5 days.
3. A third location? We can increase our total number of days to 17 if the third location is worthwhile. Is Tasmania worthwhile?
We like the outdoors: hiking ( from Colorado ), jogging, beach, sightseeing, etc.

Please advise: 1. Pros/cons of travelling during Dec/Jan time. 2. Number of days in Cairns and Sydney. 3. A third stop.

Appreciated
