We have ~6 weeks in Australia. We will be arriving in Sydney after time in Hong Kong in the beginning of Feb. We will also be departing from Sydney in mid-March. First time to AU I am trying to plan so that we avoid the hottest areas. I've been reading guide books, TRs and studying maps and articles on AU and have some general ideas that I'd love some feedback on where we are going and lengths of time which are approximates at this time. We love museums and galleries, good food and wine. We want to hike and enjoy the natural beauty. We don't want to spend time on beaches but do enjoy seeing the beauty. We love driving and while we are from the US, we have driven on the other side and are fine with it. (Biggest problem is using the windshield wipers instead of the turn signal!) The only reservations besides ff tickets is an apt for 7 days at the end in Sydney. Thanks for your advice!

Go directly from Sydney Airport to Blue Mts for 3 days.

Drive up the coast to Brisbane and visit Brisbane - total time 8 days

Fly to Tasmania - 12-14 days

Fly to Melbourne and explore area 8 days

Fly to Adelaide explore area 4 days ferry to Kangaroo Island 3 days

Fly to Sydney 7 days and return home March 18.

Thoughts?
