Need help with Australia trip planning

Jump to last reply

We are planning a first trip to Australia in mid Oct this year. Including in the party is my mom with a bad knee, so mobility is bit of an issue, and our 10 year old girl.

Planning to do 10 days excluding travel to and from Sydney.

Rough itinerary is as follows

Fly into Sydney
Spend 2-3 nights
Visit Blue mountain area - can this be a day trip from Sydney? How handicap friendly is this side trip?
Maybe a day at the Gold Coast
Fly to cairns to visit Great barrier - no divers in the group, in fact not even good swimmers othervthan my daughter in the group, so realistically what can we expect to experience?
Fly back to Sydney and back home

Is this too much for 10 days? Should we add anything else to itinerary? Western Australia sounds interesting, should we try to squeeze any of that in?

Please help with this itinerary!
