Just beginning planning a month long trip in Australia -questions

Jump to last reply

My husband and I (in our 60's) are planning a trip in March 2012. Our initial thoughts are to go to Tasmania for about one week then to Melbourne and some of NSW. We have friends that live about one hour north of Sydney who we will visit. It does seem from my little bit of reading that the weather will not be good to go to a part of the Great Barrier reef later in March. It seems impossible to visit these diverse destinations of Tasmania and GBR and some places north of Brisbane in the same trip because of the weather. We are day hikers and nature lovers who enjoy visiting National Parks. We also like some city life and good wine and food. Is there a better time of year or other thoughts as to how to do this trip? We would prefer to go in March.....
