Living at Manly, Sydney with Hilary’s friend Liz was so lovely and relaxing, but now we need to move on.
The days in Sydney/Canberra have also allowed us to get our Chinese visas, and think through exactly what we want to do with our four weeks in Australia.
After a lot of soul-searching, discussions and costings, we have settled on three main locations:
- Port Douglas – to see the Great Barrier Reef and enjoy some winter sunshine. We’ll fly to Cairns to save time, recognising we have already seen a lot of coast in California and Hawaii.
- Darwin – which sounds like a city with an interesting back-story, and is one of the few areas of Australia that Hilary didn’t visit 30 years ago.
- the Outback – which, although it’s so hard to reach, should give us the unique spirit of Australia.
Do come on the ride with us.
