October 15 thru November 4, 2007
We flew from Los Angles to Sydney on Qantas Airline. We spent two days
in Sydney where we did among other things the bridge climb
and toured the Sydney Opera House. We then flew to Cairns where we visited
the Great Barrier Reef, rode in a Hot Air Balloon, and participated in
whitewater rafting. Our travels then took us to Ayers Rock and
Alice Springs in the central part of Australia.
We then flew to Melbourne where we took a overnight cruise ship to Tasmania. While in Tasmania we drove over 600 Km in a car with the steering wheel on the right side of the car. We hiked many beautiful places including Wine Glass Bay. Our travels continued as we returned to Melbourne where we took day tours to see the Little Penguins and the 12 Apostles. In all a wonderful 21 day vacation.
