  1. Great contest. Thanks for the chance to win. I would love to visit many cities in Australia and New Zealand. In fact, those two places are top on my bucket list. However, if I have to choose just one, I would go with Sydney and travel from there to the Great Barrier Reef.

  2. One city wouldn't be enough. Friends in the south who teach skiing at Gingavine(sp?) to the barrier reef in the north, Australia would be a two month trip! Oh, and Tasmania as well!

  6. I would like to visit Melbourne. The TV series "Waterfront Cities of the World" made it look like one of the nicest cities in the world in which to live.

  10. Adelaide would be my first choice in order to visit a good friend. Then I would travel east to Melbourne and Sydney and on to Brisbane.

    1. Perth is one place I for sure want to get to. Barry Marshall lives there and I worked with him when he was doing the ground breaking research that led to his 2005 Nobel Prize in Physiology. Can't wait to see him and his family again.

    2. Hope you both make it there to see your friends. Good Luck both Evelyn and Sherry with our contest.

  16. You won't believe this! After I left my comment yesterday about wanting to go to Adelaide, a free cruise for two from Los Angeles to Sidney dropped into our laps. I booked it last night and on Sep 22nd we will be renting an RV in Sidney. Unreal. We are in shock.

    1. Wow, how lucky is that. That sounds like a fantastic time. You will have to let us know how you make out with that. How long will you be gone for?

      Delete
    2. Right offhand I think we will be gone for about 3 months. A lot depends on getting good deals on an RV and our return to the US. We also want to hop over to New Zealand if possible.

      Looks like we won't be in our house next year for you to couch surf and to walk over to Pikes Peak and make the climb :(

      Delete
    3. Sounds wonderful, I am sure that you will enjoy it so much. Don't forget to contact www..drivenow.com.au Australia about pricing. It's possible that they can give you a better deal because you will be using the RV for a longer length of time, also don't forgot that they have those one way deals too that you could take advantage of.

      We probably wouldn't be in that area until April anyhow but even if you aren't there, there is always another time. :-)

    4. We will definitely check out drivenow.com once we know our departure date from Australia. Thanks for posting their information because it is going to be very helpful.

  17. We did Australia and NZ 2 years ago for 3 1/2 months. We rented a juicy van and did 3 houses it's to defray costs. It gave us the opportunity to spend some extended time in one place. We loved it all but still so much to see there.

  24. I think I'd love to visit Brisbane first.It seems like a thriving place where so much is always going on; I'd meet a lot of people I think I'd like, and then later, I'd re-visit - this time visiting some other less populous places, just to continue meeting people in other parts of the country, and to enjoy truly spectacular scenery. I just want to know what it's like to peer up at an Australian night sky that is covered with a mind-blowing spray of intensely bright stars, planets winking in and out of view, faint hints of faraway galaxies...
