Hi friends - I would love some advice. I've done quite a bit of research already, but I'm at a loss for the best itinerary. We are going to Australia for two weeks over the Christmas break. We will be in Sydney for the first 4-5 days (that's where our plane lands so we will start there). We will eventually end up/fly out of Melbourne. We are a family of 6 (two grandparents who are pretty mobile/adventurous), two parents, two kids ages 9 and 12. Our biggest issue is that we hate spending hours in a car or a bus each day (we drove around Scotland this way, and although we saw a lot of great things, by the third day my son was throwing up with car sickness!). We much prefer staying in one place and seeing the area around that place. We are not opposed to occasional drives to/from a location, but multiple days in the car or a "road trip" vacation is not for us. We have been debating about Adelaide/Kangaroo Island; Great Ocean Road (seems like more of a driving vacation!); Phillip Island; or Tasmania. Would love to pick and focus on just one of these for our third location. Animals, culture, local life, beaches more important to us than lots of stops for scenery. Does anyone have any suggestions so I can narrow it down or any other suggestions I'm not considering? I heard Great Barrier Reef/Gold Coast was hot/humid/rainy that time of year. We have come to terms that we will not see everything in one trip, nor do we want to try.
