Planning guidance for 27 days in Australia (Sept/Oct)

Jump to last reply

Like many others I am pleading for some help to guide planning. We (two 65 year old) have tickets from Portland, OR (via Vancouver, CA) to Sydney, arriving on Sept 19 and departing on Oct 16 (a total of 27 days). I looked at a few guidebooks and there is just too much to see, with considerable flying needed to get from place to place and I feel stuck...We want to avoid driving. While this will be probably our only trip to Australia, we do not want to just run around. We like cities, nature (but we are not into diving, skiing, hiking, etc.). We do not enjoy very hot climates and beaches are not a major attraction for us. While this doesn't say a lot, maybe some of you tireless, expert Fodorites can come up with some suggested, reasonable itinerary/length of stay (based on the climate during these weeks in different areas, time it takes to get from place to place, etc). Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
