Around Australia in 28 day
We lived in Australia from 1958 to 1964 before coming to Hawaii. On our voyage to Australia from the UK we had seen Fremantle, Adelaide, and Melbourne before arriving in Sydney. We lived in Sydney for six months before going to Rockhampton in central Queensland where we lived for five and a half years. During that time we made several road trips. One road trip took us to Port Douglas in northern Queensland. We stayed in the Surfer's Paradise area on several occasions. On one 3-day road trip we went all the way to Sydney and visited Australia's capital city, Canberra, and the Blue Mountains. We are very fond of Australia and Australians, and their relaxed "she'll be right, mate" way of life. When the opportunity arose in April 2011 to take a 28 day trip all around Australia by cruise ship we seized it.
