Please help with 16-day December itinerary

Jump to last reply

We are in the early stages of planning a 16-day Australia trip in December. We are a couple in our mid-50's, loyal Fodorites, avid travelers, love natural beauty, culture, and iconic city sights. Not much into beaches. A very preliminary rough-cut itinerary proposal is as below :

Day 1 to 4 : Arrive at Sydney, and explore the city including Blue Mountains

Day 5 to 8 : Cairns, primarily Great Barrier Reef (must-see); also Port Douglas ??

Day 9 to 10 : Uluru (must-see)

Day 11 to 16 : Melbourne, including a couple of days on Great Ocean Road. Fly out of Melbourne.

Plan to use flights for internal travel, and car rental where necessary (e.g. Great Ocean Road).

Please propose changes and comments on this itinerary. We have listed out the things and places we would like to see; not very sure if we are covering it in the right order, or if we are allocating the "right" amount of time at each place. All suggestions are welcome, as nothing is firmed up yet, and everything is open to change.
