-Hi there Lisa, You're certainly coming to a beautiful country &we wish you loads of fun!

Kangaroo Island, in my opinion, is certainly worth the trip - the bird &wildlife is exceptional, as is the marine life. The fur seals wonderful! Lots more available on their tourist assn. website http://www.tourkangarooisland.com.au

Scenic areas fairly close by are the Barossa Valley vineyards, Great Ocean Road &the Grampions (national park).

Gail Norris, a fellow, &informed, Ziner has travelogues aplenty on the exciting sites in Cairns, Kuranda Markets, Mossman Gorge, Cape Trib &more.

Think you also may enjoy Byron Bay for fab beaches, cafes &markets, alternative lifstyles but interesting.

The Ettamorgah Pub &the Eumundi markets on the Sunshine Coast are also a cultural experience!

The Barrier Reef is a MUST &day or overnight trips are readily available from Cairns.

Please let us know if you'd like any further info &have a wonderful trip!
