suggestions please for my trip

Jump to last reply

Help! I can't decide how to plan my trip at the end of May/June with my son of 26.

We're going to Adelaide for the first week seeing a relative. Then on 31st May I've booked flights to Sydney. We will stay a couple of nights in Sydney, then visit friends in Canberra and probably stay with them on 3rd & 4th June. We would like to visit Melbourne after that. Not sure how long to stay in Melbourne or the best way to get there from Canberra - bus/coach? What do you think?

Then we've got until 13th June when we need to be back in Adelaide for the flight home on 14th. I understand the weather won't be so good in Melbourne in June, so am thinking maybe of going to Brisbane or even further north to get some warmer weather. I do like the beach and swimming in the sea (but can live without it!), but also enjoy towns. A trip along the Great Ocean Road from Melbourne back to Adelaide might have been good at a warmer time of year, but probably not so good in June.

It's so hard to decide, and I really would like to book whatever accommodation and flights I can in advance to be able to budget better.

Anyone got any suggestions please?

Thanks in advance.
