My partner and I are thinking of visiting Australia for 3 weeks over the Christmas and NYE period, I'm just after a few opinions on what ideas we have so far as neither of us have been before! Here's our itinerary so far...
Fly from Heathrow to Singapore 20th Dec, fly to Brisbane on 23rd and have Christmas and New Year there, then fly to Cairns on the 2nd Jan before lastly flying to Sydney on the 7th Jan, until coming home on the 12th Jan. (Dates are just an idea and nothing is set in stone)
Some things I definitely want to do is visit the Great Barrier Reef, Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge, anything animal related like zoo, koala sanctuary, etc. Having never visited and neither of us have family/friends there I'm not sure how things run over xmas.
I've planned to be in Brisbane over xmas and NYE as, like many people, it would be a dream to move over there and we'd be interested in this area most. If anyone has any suggestions for things to do at this time of year, that would be great! We're also thinking about renting a car in Brisbane and possibly having a trip to the Gold Coast.
We're both in our early 20's and have a healthy budget for a big trip like this, please give any suggestions! :) Thanks in advance!
