Our agent did a terrific job of suggesting places to go and things to see. With her planning, we were able to forget about the logistic hassles and were met at each airport by our limo (usually a Mercedes and one Rolls Royce!)..
Our accommodations were top notch (except for Kangaroo Island where there weren't as many choices). I especially liked reclining on our bed in Sydney and looking out at the harbor traffic under the bridge. Also, the apartment in Port Douglas was timed just right so we could have a free afternoon to relax and do laundry. And the service at our Hobart hotel was outstanding.
The small tour groups - from just us in the Daintree & Melbourne to just four and a guide in Kangaroo Island - were terrific. Larger groups weren't bad, though our van driver in Sydney kept stalling the vehicle.
My wife's favorite place was Kangaroo Island because of all the wildlife - kind of an Australian safari. She also enjoyed the penguin parade at Phillips Island. Of course we both enjoyed the rest of the trip and sights.
I liked hiking in the forest at the Blue Mountains (spotted a king parrot) and in the Daintree. I especially enjoyed our private tour at Daintree with an aboriginal guide who took us to his home and told us about his father and his siblings being taken from their parents and put in a mission school. He also had many aboriginal items to show us. We then stopped at some interesting walks, including a mangrove swamp.
Only tour I would not recommend was the sunrise breakfast at Uluru - the flies were so bad once the sun rose that we couldn't eat anything.
