Queensland north and Perth south

Jump to last reply

This is our 2nd trip to Australia (prev Sydney, Adelaide, Ocean Rd, Melbourne and Tas). This 2nd trip was originally planned to visit Perth and areas to the north and south (Margaret River, Albany) but I got a nice direct flight to Brisbane and return from Sydney so instead of immediately booking 2nd leg to Perth we are now planning to spend some time in Queensland (maybe 7-8 days) then maybe fly to Uluru (3 days) then the remaining 11-12 days in Perth area travelling the loop south and east via Margaret River.

The part of the trip that I am struggling with is Brisbane/Queensland. Originally I thought 1 day Brisbane, 2 at OReillys, drive to Noosa? maybe fly to Cairns (Port Douglas) and out to reef - but I think it is too much travelling. We would like to go to the reef so maybe we should fly out to one of the island resorts for 2 nights.(recommendations?) Is this long enough to make it worthwhile?
-really would like to see Lamington Park, it would be good to visit GBR -but just need to figure out how to hit the highlights to make this part of trip manageable.
I could leave out Uluru - but it would be interesting to see and might help breakup the trip/flight time.
Trip is 3 1/2 wks in Dec (is it going to be uncomfortably warm in Queensland - I know it is approaching the wet season)
