Planning 13 days in Australia next January. Thinking about staying primarily on the east coast, to see Sydney, Melbourne and then head up to the reef to dive. Looking for itinerary advice and suggestions.
Also wondering if anything thinks it's worth jumping over to Auckland for 1-2 days, just to check it out.

sydney,melbourne and the reef in 13 days??? no chance!! wouldnt even be worth it cos u'd have no time at all!!id concentrate on one of them areas if you only have 13 days!! x

Im going in Nov this year for a year, and i dont think that will be enough, lol like the other guy said, u need more time, u might be able to do 2 citys with a month, but still pushing it.

Auckland isn't really worth the flight by itself, definitely not if you've only got 13 days to cover all that distance in Oz!
