The Shrine of Remembrance is my favourite Melbourne building and I’m lucky to live very near to it. I can enjoy it day and night, especially when there are celebrations and commemorations taking place. Why is the Shrine worth visiting? 1. It’s free! But donations...More

You do not have time to visit Noosa/Coolum as well as the Gold Coast. Pick one or the other for your three night stay. Other than that, you have a good balance. We talk in Australian dollars so $125 USD is about $171.00 AUD. This is far too low for accommodation for a family of three unless you are looking at shared backpacker hostel rooms. Taking tours is going to be far more expensive than a hire car - you might be better to deal with driving on the left. Watch some you tube videos - it...More
