Off to Australia at the weekend for a holiday - I posted a month or two back about the wisdom of flying to Oz from the UK with a baby long haul, and have decided to go ahead with my wife and 4 month old bairn. Wish us luck
We have a week in Sydney for a wedding, catching up with friends, then we’re hiring a camper van for two weeks. We have no idea where to go right now with it, it’s basically a toss up between north up the coast to Byron bay, Brisbane way, or maybe through the Blue Mountains then South towards Melbourne. What do Aussie dopers think to this simple north v south idea?
We both love hiking, the outdoors etc, but with the wee man in tow we’ll probably be happy just driving through the national parks and camping. We both appreciate the beauty of the sea, beaches and the coast, but neither of us would really enjoy a day at the beach, unless it was a hike along the coast.
A last point is that we’ve heard Sydney is a very baby-friendly city, which is great. We’re wondering about the wisdom of really hitting the road properly as there might not be a lot to do with a baby in some of the smaller towns. Maybe making it a more urban holiday might be a good idea.
