They are cities. I'd prefer to get out of the cities.

They are all cities.

It's like comparing fruit in a basket. All different, all best in their own way.

Is this a bucket list thing, or before your return ticket?

Clare Valley Gourmet weekend is coming up, but you might have trouble with accom so late. Caberet Festival in early June.

The impressionist paintings are touring.

The Flinders, the Murray, ,the coast, Barossa, Coonawarra or Hills wine regions, or Kangaroo Island are all 'good'

Have a look at the state tourism websites ..

How long do you have ?

Interests ?

When ?

Melbourne (5 million people) plus Great Ocean Road.

Or Hobart (220,000 people) plus MONA plus Port Arthur plus national parks.

If that is your shortlist then knowing why you shortlisted them might help us to give you some useful information about which could suit you best.

If it is just a random list of destinations not already in your itinerary or places with cheap or convenient flight connections or something, they're all great in their own way and I'd love to 'sell' them to you but their own tourism websites already do that anyway, and we are in no position to match them to your needs on the paucity of criteria provided.

Well, Brisbane of course!

Seriously, how can we answer that without knowing time of year, number of days available, your interests, whether you can drive a car and plan to hire one, and what the rest of your itinerary is to best fit it in re flight times etc.

So, Vancouver, Calgary, PEI - I have time for one more, which one and why?

Cheers

Depends on your interest, time of year and rest of your itinerary. If it’s all cities too then somewhere else may be better for you
