Last-Minute Trip To Australia - Dec 2017

Jump to last reply

We kindly request your assistance. We are doing a last-minute trip to Australia in Dec 17. It has been on the bucket-list for decades!

There have been a couple of family events that have placed things in perspective. So, why wait!

We are looking at a total of 22 days. The itinerary so far is as follows:

1. Sydney - 4 Days
a. Looking to stay at the Rocks or Circular Quay area; we are looking for a hotel with a great view of the Sydney Opera house and harbor. We are considering:
* Shangri-La
* Sydney Harbour Marriott
* Any suggestions?
2. Brisbane - 2 Days
3. Gold Coast - 2 Days
4. Port Douglas - 4 Days
5. Yulara - (maybe)
6. Tasmania
7. Melbourne
8. Sydney - night before flight home.


We are looking to stay at a nice hotel in Sydney and moderate hotels or AirBnb for the remainder of the vacation. We are also open to reducing the number of stops and opt for a 4-night stay at key locations.

Also, recommended must dos! We are an active couple in our 50s, and love to hike, run, etc. Looking forward to snorkel in the Great Barrier Reef!

Thank you so much for your assistance!

Best,
PNK
