    Don't just stay in Sydney. Hire a car and take the coastal road to Melbourne. It's a fantastic trip with some great scenery. Schedule at least 3 lazy days to do it. Spend the first night in the Southern Highlands...it's very glam! And Melbourne is so different, and somewhat more soothing. Or drive north to Byron Bay. The gay beach is divine.

  3. Yes, did a trip down to Melbourne last year. Might pop over to Hobart or Byron though. Hunter Valley's a deffo. Freewheeling at the moment. Which is scary but nice.
