Have you sorted your campervan yet ... if not look into relocations ... they often work out much cheaper.

Highlights for me -

Cairns - To dive the GBR
Whitsundays
Fraser Island - You MUST drive, otherwise it's pointless (well, just a pissup - which can be done anywhere in Oz)
Surfing - not sure where you're from or if you've surfed before but if not do a 4 day trip (2 or 3 days is just too short)
Byron Bay - OzMex, I'm sure that's what it's called ... the taco shop ... mmmmmm ... the lighthouse walk - dolphins, manta rays & sharks .. woohoo
Sydney - great, but don't do what we all do ... spend too long and get sucked in
Kings Cross, Sydney - Like being back in Asia
The Rocks, Sydney - some great "traditional English pubs" up there, but they're expensive ($10 / beer)
