Please help with 3-week itinerary!

Jump to last reply

My daughter will be studying in Sydney from August until Dec 1st. I have cashed in air miles and will fly from JFK, arriving November 24th. I plan to see Sydney and environs (all suggestions welcome) while she finishes her studies, and then we have until our return flight together on December 14th to explore.

I would like to see Melbourne for a couple of days, if possible, go to Alice Springs and Uluru (two or three days enough?) then head to the GBR area. As it will be the second week in December and we have to consider the possible rain, where should we go? Whitsundays? Port Douglas/Daintree? Cruise around the GBR? She is SCUBA certified and I plan to be by the time we go.

The information is so overwhelming. I am accustomed to planning my travel but this seems a daunting task. Thank you to all Down Under !
