Going to Australia?

I have always thought it would be neat to visit Australia. The first thing I would do is check out the hotels in Sydney. Once settled, I might head down to Palm Beach or catch the Manly Ferry to take in the beautiful views of the city. Later, I might enjoy a performance at the Sydney Opera House. Of course, I would have to take the kids to see the animals at Taronga Zoo. We could have a quick lunch by the beach before heading off to visit the Royal Botanic Gardens. Sydney has such a laid back outdoor lifestyle, and there is truly something for everyone to enjoy!

After Sydney, we would move on to Melbourne. After we check out the hotels in Melbourne, we may take one of the many tours offered there. There are motorcycle tours, winery tours, luxury coach tours, and even kayaking! Another thing that caught my attention were the scenic flights offered in Melbourne. We can take a flight in a seaplane or an early morning hot air balloon flight! Maybe we will even do a little windsurfing on the Great Southern Ocean. When we are finished with all of our outdoor fun, we might stop into a local restaurant to try some Cantonese food.

Our next stop will be Brisbane. This is a neat little place with a lot of history. It is actually the capital of Queensland, which became a colony in 1859. Besides this, Brisbane is known for its live music scene, theatres, and museums. It is also home to the Story Bridge. This is one of only three legally climbable bridges in the world!

After our climb, we will be tired so we'll check out the hotels in Brisbane. We will have to fly home after visiting Brisbane since I'm sure we will have spent all of our money. I know we will have a lovely time and that we will make another trip back to Australia!
