Hi there hope you guys can help.....

Planning on going to explore 'Down Under' for the first time. Hope to have a 3 stop flight ticket. Only place that have to go is Melbourne where we will be spending 10 days to 2 weeks with.
Now then big question where would be the first two stops be for the first time visitor? possibly 5 to 7 days at each port of call.
Any ideas will be gratefully looked at and considered,
many thanks for you help and advise.

I think probably Sydney and Cairns if you have no restrictions on the other two cities you can visit. From Sydney you can check out all the normal stuff in the city like the harbour bridge and opera house and you can do a day trip into the blue mountains.

From Cairns you could do a reef trip, and perhaps a couple of days up to Cape Tribulation.
