Planning ~14 days in Australia

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are set for the first two weeks of our month-long trip to Australia (we are staying with friends in Brisbane / Gold Coast area) but we are trying to settle on the details for the last two weeks. She studied in that area about a decade ago and toured most of the major tour spots around the country. She's excited to tour any/all of it with me, but wants me to give the final say on where we go. Every place looks so good to me (on paper), I just can't decide.

Since our first two weeks are with friends, I would like to contrast that with a bit more adventure / action / touring. So, we are looking at various tours ranging from 5 - 11 days in essentially the last two weeks of August with a tour company my wife used back when she was in college there. I'm leaning toward an 11-day from Melbourne => Alice Springs, but I don't know much about that route (or any others for that matter). Any input on places that are particularly nice that time of the year? Any place that a person must see if I'm only probably going to make this trip one time?

I'm brand new to this site, so hopefully this is enough detail to get some input -- let me know if I can provide any other details!
