Request for suggestions - family of 4, only American-sized holiday

Jump to last reply

We have a hold on round trip flights in and out of Sydney. We're a family of four with two small hobbits (7.5, 5) at the time of the trip. Our trip will coincide with US holidays - early June.

We'd like to go to the Red Centre, end in Sydney and one other stop. Preference would be something like this:

Stop One for 3-4 nights (connect through Sydney)
Red Centre (Uluru) for 2 or 3 nights
Sydney for 3-4 nights

We have 10 nights total (max) on the ground. And yeah, it's a bit rushed for toting the halflings around but this is the rare time we can swing the trip and one of them is a good traveler (the other will get that way, somehow).

I have been to Sydney, Darwin, Cairns (GBR and Daintree), Uluru, Adelaide/Barossa/Kangaroo Island. The head of household herself has been to Sydney, Darwin, and the Adelaide wander noted above. Neither previous trip included the two small people who look like my wife.

Now for the interests: local fauna from avian to marsupial to the remaining dinosaur-descendant reptiles (the boy likes crocodiles and alligators), some bushwalking and mountains. So we'd visit the Blue Mountains while in Sydney and similar. Honestly, we expect the kids will be bouncing off the bloody walls just about the whole time we're in Oz.

The open question is what should be stop one? Darwin and the Top End? Brisbane and the Queensland Coast? KI and Adelaide?

Thanks in advance.
