Too old to work, too young to die – let’s travel. My wife Regina and myself decided to visit the most exciting places on this world and since we don’t know how long we long we can afford the long flights we started with the most distant destinations. And after visiting Antarctica in 2015 and New Zealand in 2016 the most distant target from Europe is Australia. So we had in December 2016 – February 2017 a gorgeous trip through Australia.

We spent ca seven weeks there flew ca. 10,000 km and drove ca. 4,000 km within Australia.

We have written this trip report both to describe what we have seen but also to help other people to plan such a trip. Please accompany us on this trip.

We have visited: Australia Trip Report 2017 – Sydney, Australia Trip Report 2017 – Brisbane Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Fraser Island, Australia Trip Report 2017 – Airlie Beach, Whitsunday Islands, Australia Trip Report 2017 – Cairns Great Barrier Reef, Daintree National Park, Australia Trip Report 2017 – Darwin, Kakadu National park, Nitmiluk Nationa Park, Australia Trip Report 2017 – Uluru, Kings Canyon, Australia, Trip Report 2017 – Melbourne, Grampian National Park, Great ocean Road, Australia Trip Report 2017 – Adelaide, Barossa Valley, Perth, Freemantlke, Rottnest Island.

People who want to plan such a trip should address the Australia Trip report 2017 – Conclusions too. The Australia Trip Report 2017 – Itinerary shows the places where we have visited and where we have stayed.

The points of interest in Australia are less the cities and the buildings but more the landscape and fauna and flora. There are a few older buildings but very often they kept only the façade and rebuilt the whole building behind it. We liked very much Australia and felt excellent during the whole trip. The Australian are friendly, laid-back people and very helpful.

The native English speakers please apologize my grammatical and lingual faults. However be aware that they are my intellectual property and cannot be used without my prior written agreement.
