First thanks for all the wonderful advice. Trip advisor people are the best!
My wife and I are planning a trip to tassie and the outback during June. Including Sydeney and maybe Carnes.
The fairs are great right now so I'm feeling really pushed to book my flight. I was thiniking of going United only 750 US$ to Syd. June 6 return July 8
Quantas is $865 ( will a Quantas flight be that much better?
Is it best to use domestic airlines Jet and Virgin Blue for travel within Au?
It seems that I will need a least 2- 2 1/2- weeeks for Tas. But let me ask this. It is not essential that I see everything. I just want to see, do and experience the most interesting things. ( yes I know that I can spend a year/lifetime in TAS and it will all be fantastic, but I work on that later.
So maybe you can help me focus and decide where I do/should and do don't need to go for my first trip.
Maybe you can list what you think would be options for ultimate TAS two week Iten.--- and if you had 3-4 extra days then...
Rent a Car and go YES Husbanad /Wife age 60 well seasoned travelors.
#1 PRIORITY--- CLOSE INTERACTION WITH ANIMAL land and sea --NATURE.
#2 mind blowing scenery, activities, off the beaten path adventure, local folk, wanderinig, exploring, food best of the best day tour or excursions. One of a kind sortqa stuff.
(although we don't want to camp)
3. Love the arts...... and crafts
I can walk fofrever but, can't do too radical " high cardiac" activity stuff / other than that we are up for everything.
I love to do mega detailed planning but I am also open to a plan to stay spontanious.
Things that I don't need to see or do too much more of anymore are churches, museums, old houses, or geling on beaches.
I hate to ask but
will the weather spoil any of the great activities?
or it be too cold to enjoy?
If you have any knowledge of outback ideas please share.
At the moment I was thinking of going to Darwin for 10 days to Kackado and Katherine Gorge
I will end with 4 days in Sydney befor returning to US
The whole trip will be about 32 days. Unless I add 5 days for Carn. But I am leaning against because I have been to several rainforres and scuba dived on many other reefs and SD is expensive.
If I didin't do Carn. whould there be another place that you might say MUST GO !!!! with 5 extra days?
Thanks I look forward to your thoughts
