Hi everyone, I need help with planning a trip to Australia in Feb 2019.
My friend and I are thinking about starting from Melbourne and then fly to Launceston, and then drive around Tasmania and fly to Sydney out of Hobart (we want our last stop in Sydney and finish all outdoor activities before that so we can chill out). We are females in our mid 20s and enjoy the beach, the great outdoors, beautiful scenery, photography, animals (but not insects :P), good food (both cheap and expensive), shopping, drinking, going out, meeting people, cultural stuff etc and want to make sure we will get to do all these during our 2 week trip so here i have a few questions before booking our flights:
1. How long to spend in each place? We are thinking 4 days in Melbourne, 6 days in Tasmania, 5 days in Sydney but we are flexible and want suggestions please.
2. Are parks, beaches, and nature more beautiful in Tasmania than Melbourne and Sydney? I looked up top national parks in Australia and looks like Tas has the best parks. However, if anyone thinks we can get the same thing in Melbourne or Sydney, we might just skip Tas altogether and spend more time in Victoria and NSW.
3. How is the drive from Launceston to Hobart?
4, If we do end up skipping Tas, please suggest parks, reserves, outdoor adventures we can do in Victoria/ NSW?
If anyone could answer my questions, thank you so much in advance!
