This will depend quite a bit on what you are after. Are you going for sights, cities, partying, beaches or something else? There are a lot of great places to go and see in Australia. Travelling the East coast is the most popular route for most visitors, because you can see a lot of different things in a relatively compact area (for Australia that is... it's still like travelling all the way across Europe in terms of distance!!!)...

Let us know more about what you are interested in and we can try and be of more (useful) assistance.

My favorite was Caines and the Great Barrier Reef.

I did the Great Ocean Road in South Victoria (by Melbourne) this weekend with Peter. It was a great trip and we were able to do it pretty easily in 2 days, although you could give it a couple more and really see everything there is to see. There are a lot of great rock formations, gorges, rainforests, and some really nice towns along the way... all in all it was a great roadtrip.

Hi, I live in Aus and have traveled through it alot. I highly recomend going to Central Australia (backpacking thorugh Ayers rock, Kings Canyon, and up to Litchfeild National Park - better than Kakado) for beautiful sights then QLD, Byron Bay Great Barrier Reef, Sydney for more social times :)
