Our daughter is at university in Melbourne for a year so we wanted to visit her. We haven’t really thought about visiting Australia before but we’re so glad we had a reason to travel all that way. Three weeks seems like such a long time away, but we packed it full of so many amazing experiences that it went by before we knew it. Now we’re hooked and planning our next trip as want to visit the Outback with her while she’s still Down Under!
