I am getting married in Jan of 2011 and will be honeymooning in Australia for three weeks. I recently purchased a lonely planet guide and have been pouring over it but I'm already overloaded with information and can't make heads or tails. Hopefully someone can suggest a suitable itinerary for us.
We will be arriving in Sydney on Jan 24th. We will be spending at least 6 or 7 days in Sydney with no car. So far the bridge climb, opera house tour, botanical gardens, shopping, bondi beach, zoo, fish market are definitely on our list of things to do. Also I want to spend at least one night in the blue mountain area. I'm not fond of tours but I haven't ruled anything out at this point.
With the country being so vast, I can't seem to figure out what order to do the rest of the cities in. We will be traveling to the following: Cairns (great barrier reef), Adelaide and Kangaroo Island, Melbourne, Uluru (2 nights only). We also want to go to either the Barossa or Hunter Valley to do a wine tour.
Any suggestions?? More than likely we will be flying between the cities.
Thanks in advance
