We are traveling from LAX to a wedding in Margaret River outside of Perth in Dec 2010. We will be spending 5-6 days in Margaret River and then want to make a stopover somewhere else for 4-5 days before heading back to the US. The easiest choices are Sydney or Brisbane, but we are open to suggestions. I had a friend recommend Queenstown in S. New Zealand (she has traveled a lot and says its her favorite place so far) but it adds quite a bit of travel time, so I'm not sure if it's worth it. Thanks for any help!
