In July of 2006 I was lucky enough to be able to go Melbourne, Queensland, and Tasmania (another entry). Melbourne is now one of my favorite cities. I just loved running down by the Yarra River and exploring around town. It was nice to also see another former Olympic site. While there I also took in the Great Ocean Road for a day--a trip I won't forget. If you get the chance to see it please go! Then it was off to Queensland with Cairns as a base. I was able to go snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef, take in many waterfalls inland at the Atherton tableland area, and also drove north from Cairns until the road ended in the Daintree Rain Forest. There I was lucky enough to spot a casowary when out hiking--a major highlight of my trip! All in all the Aussies were the friendliest people I have encountered on my travels.
