I live in Australia, if you need any advice, contact me ๐Ÿ™‚

 

What I can tell you…

-Figure on $1000 each for airfaire.. it varies depending on when you buy

-EVERYTHING in Australia is more expensive (food, activities) for example, to go to the Sydney zoo, it costs about 40$ per person plus parking

-If you want to go somewhere quiet and romantic, avoid Sydney.. There are some beautiful beaches on the south coast (fly into Sydney, drive about 4 hours south) OR if you want to go to the great barrier reef, fly into Queensland–not anytime soon though, the flooding isn’t very appealing OR check out the Hunter Valley  wineries, about 2 hours north of Sydney

-Consider sailing in the Witsundays, I’ve never done it but people rave about it

 

You can definitely do a nice trip for $7000,  but remember that its a big country to you’ll have to make some decisions on what you want to see/do ๐Ÿ™‚

I think that your budget is doable. If possible, see if you can book with a travel agency, as they can provide you discounts on flights and hotels.

My husbnad and i went to Bora Bora, Hamilton Ilsand, Sydney, and Melbourne for our honeymoon. We traveled for a month and stayed in overwater bungalows, a Four Seaons, a Langham, and a nice beach club. We went on a lot of trips, such as a tour of the Great Barrier Reef, the Penguin Parade near Melbourne, the Sydney Opera House (we saw “The Pirates of Penzance”), various museums (which are often free), and the Sydney Zoo (we took a ferry there and I had a coupon). Our trip cost us around 13-14K (well worth it). If we could do 3.5 weeks in nice hotels for that budget, 2 weeks in Australia for 7K is definitely doable (and yeah the Whitsundays are amazing!)

I also realized that this post is 6 months old… but maybe someone can benefit from it!
