Hello all, I know that this post doesn't pertain to UO but I figured that this would be a good place to get some input. I live in the US and am going to begin planning my honeymoon, which won't be till early 2010 but I'm trying to get a head start. Anyways, both me and my wife (to be) have always wanted to go to Australia and figured that this would be the perfect time to go. We're planning on going for about 2 weeks, maybe sometime in January. We've started looking through different travel books trying to figure out good places to stay but its pretty overwhelming and we're not exactly sure where to start. We're thinking about spending 1 week in Sydney and then another week some where up north in Queensland. I love the ocean and have always dreamed of learnign how to surf, so anyplace with a beach would be good. Also, I absolutely love lizards, snakes, basically all types of animals and would like to be able to go to the outback for a day or two. I've had bearded dragons since I was a kid and have always wanted to see them in the wild. I figured that the best way to get some ideas would be to talk to people who actually live in Australia. Thanks a lot for any help you can give me. I just want this trip to be one that we will remeber for the rest of our lives.
