Me and my wife are from Brazil and we'll be in Australia for the first time this January. We'll be in Sydney for the most time but we'll also visit Melbourne and Lady Elliot Island (at the south of the great reef barrier).
We have a wedding to go in Wollongong so we are wondering staying around for 2 to 4 days instead of being more time in Sydney.
I guess we would appreciate a different vibe and visiting beaches, parks and see the local culture.
We would probably rent a car to do it, so we could do day trips around the area.
Does it seem like a good idea? How many days would you suggest and what activities?
From the top listed here in the TA we liked the Botanical Gardens and the Eat Street Markets.
And about day trips, what would you recommend?
