Looking for inspiration

The dilemma - where to go (within Australia or relatively close) for an 8-10 day period in September, leaving from Perth, Australia.

Two well-traveled, outdoor loving people who enjoy national parks, hiking, good food and wine. Not big on cities, heat/humidity, lounging on beaches. Not interested in Bali (or anywhere in Indonesia for that matter). Would prefer a shortish flight, which for sandgropers means a max of about six hours.

Have already considered and disqualifed Kununurra (too hot in September).

Briefly considered Broome, but not sure we could keep ourselves entertained for 8-10 days there. Stil considering Canberra, but haven't done the research yet, so not sure if it's a contender. Have previously visited TAS, SA, NSW, QLD and VIC, not all recently. Have visited NZ many times.

Norfolk Island? Alice Springs? Where to go, where to go?

Let the brainstorming begin. All ideas welcome and appreciated.
