10 days in Australia


Published on

With 10 days, your visit to Australia will be much more relaxed and you'll get a greater sense of the diversity of Australia landscape, wildlife, and people. You will get to see all three icons -- Sydney, the Great Barrier Reef, and Uluru -- in more depth, and maybe even have time to go outside those areas, especially if you limit your icons to two instead of three.
