We had a fantastic 15-day trip to Australia for our honeymoon. We traveled from the US to Australia and visited Sydney, Cairns/Port Douglas, and Melbourne. Our travel agent was superb and provided excellent recommendations for tours, activities, the order of our itinerary, etc. He suggested some activities that we would otherwise never have considered, which was a nice way to get out of our comfort zones. Additionally, our agent arranged all of the logistics -- transportation and drivers, hotels, domestic flights, etc. -- so we could spend our time enjoying the trip. This was our first time working with a travel company and it was an outstanding experience.
We enjoyed our time in Cairns/Port Douglas the most. We stayed at an Eco Resort, which is a bit isolated between Cairns and Port Douglas, but provides such a unique experience (and great pool and beach). During that segment of the trip we snorkeled the Great Barrier Reef, toured the Mossman Gorge with an Aborigine guide (really fun and educational), and took the Skyrail Cableway through the rainforest in Cairns. We saw so much wildlife on our hikes and our tour guides were more than happy to discuss anything related to Australia.
A close second in terms of most enjoyable was Melbourne. The city is eclectic and vibrant, has lots of fantastic food, and is a great base of operations to see nearby attractions (Phillip Island for the Penguin Parade and the Great Ocean Road for the Twelve Apostles). Melbourne's Chinatown is impressive and should not be missed. The city is very international with large immigrant communities and is much more compact than Sydney, making it easier to get around by walking or taking trams.
Nothing, everything went very well!
