A travel plan for Australia is ready for you!

Hi
Firstly, I must congratulate you with the choice of destinations. Australia is a gem of places and the destinations chosen by you are amongst the best. I will suggest you to leave Hobart. So I have created a suitable travel plan of Brisbane, Gold Coast, Byron Bay, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide for you so that you return with many good memories with you.

This track takes visitors to the Captain Cook Lookout, Wategos Beach (stop off for a swim) and on to the Cape Byron Lighthouse.
 
If you’d rather get adventurous, try a hang-gliding run from either Lennox Head or Cape Byron. Not only is it exhilarating, but it also allows visitors to get a full scenic view of the area while doing some wildlife spotting at the same time. Whales, dolphins, rays and more pass through the region's waters. Before heading back to the town of Byron Bay for late afternoon shopping and dinner, it's a great time to explore the breath-taking beaches, including Wategos and Little Wategos.

Day 11

Byron Bay is set in gorgeous surrounds, like Mount Warning National Park, which is just about an hour away. Enjoy the walking tracks and don't forget to bring a picnic lunch. If you prefer snorkeling or diving, get on a boat that heads to Julian Rocks. The marine reserve has plenty of nooks and crannies to explore and a number of warmer currents from the waters of the north, so the chance to come face-to-face with Great Barrier Reef type species is high.

Walking through the gardens and along the seawall is such a relaxed and quiet way to start your city experience - breathe in the harbour air and the trees as you go. The Royal Botanic Gardens is a major botanical garden located in the heart of Sydney, Australia. Opened in 1816, the garden is the oldest scientific institution in Australia and one of the most important historic botanical institutions in the world.

No trip to Sydney is complete without a trip to Watson's Bay and a seafood splurge at Doyles. It's a tradition from the old days, when Doyles sold fish and chips to youngsters like myself, who marvelled at the huge sharks weighed in on the old wharf. Enjoy the sweeping views of the harbour.
 
With this you can call it a day and head back to your hotel for a nice sleep.

Day 13

Bondi Beach

(Source: Francesco Supertramp)
Everything seems so playfully hedonistic here that even swimming seems like a chore. It is THE place in Sydney for 'people watching' - so much so that even the surfers spend a lot of time on their boards watching one another.

Sydney Tower Eye and SKYWALK

(Source: HappyWorldTravel)
It's great to get a bird’s eye view of just how expansive Sydney is. From Sydney Tower Eye you can see all the way to the Blue Mountains and watch the storm clouds roll in from the south.

Chinatown

(Source: jon_lin)
Chinatown is always busy, and a stroll down the main drag of Dixon st will leave you with the paradox of food choice. My preference is to walk another two blocks to the corner of Thomas and Quay streets where you'll find The Burlington Centre - the restaurants here are cheaper and very authentic.

Balmain

(Source: philipbouchard)
Balmain, New South Wales is a suburb in the Inner West of Sydney, Australia. Balmain is located 6 km west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the Municipality of Leichhardt. Beautiful old terraced houses, leafy streets and some of the best live music pubs in Sydney make Balmain well worth a visit.
 
With this you end your day and head back to your hotel for a nice sleep.

Day 14

The itinerary of this day should include Kings Cross and Manly.

Kings Cross

(Source: RachelH_)
No matter how late in the night, you'll always manage to get a coffee or a drink in 'the cross.' Walking the main drag of Darlinghurst rd is worth it just for the experience, but walk further either to Macleay st or Victoria st to find the best cafes.

Manly

(Source: Hector Garcia)
Even if you've lived here all your life, taking the ferry to Manly and back remains a classic experience. Passing between north and south head, the open sea meets the harbour and you can literally feel the swell rise. Manly itself is like the Bondi of the north, but with less attitude. Except when it comes to surfing - which Manlyites claim was invented there!
 
With this you end your day and head back to your hotel for a nice sleep.

Day 15

On this day you can head for a day trip to Blue Mountains.

Blue Mountains

(Source: stevoarnold)
Just 90 minutes west of Sydney, the Blue Mountains boast some of Australia's most verdant scenery and have long been a popular day trip for both Sydneysiders and tourists. The region's tree-covered mountains and steep gorges are often swathed in a blue haze -- hence the name "Blue Mountains" -- caused by a mist of evaporating oil from the area's numerous eucalyptus trees. Visitors to the region can expect stunning views of the World Heritage Site's wilderness, including Bridal Veil Falls, the region's most striking waterfalls; the Three Sisters, enormous sandstone pillars; as well as hiking trails (called "bushwalking" trails Down Under) and even a gum tree forest.
 
The region is best explored from either the town of Katoomba, the region's largest town and home to Echo Point lookout and views of the Sisters, or Blackheath, a tinier village located at the 3, 500-foot summit of the mountains and in proximity to hiking trails and Govett's Leap lookout. Reach the Blue Mountains by car, driving west on Parramatta Road to the M4 Motorway, or take a train from Sydney's Central Railway Station to the Blackheath or Katoomba railway stations.
 
After this you need to head back as you got your flight to Melbourne.

Day 22

The itinerary of this day should include a day trip to Barossa Valley.

Barossa Valley

(Source: Kyle Taylor, Dream It. Do It.)
This destination full of rolling hills, quality produce and some 70-odd wineries and cellar doors will likely be one of the major drawcards for many mature travellers visiting Adelaide, with the city located a reasonably short distance from the Barossa making for an easily accessible culinary paradise. As a result, while many choose to use the Barossa as the spot for an overnight stay, its proximity to the city leads to the ideal destination for a day trip with a roughly 1.5-hour drive time by road. The region is Australia's largest wine-producing region and responsible for the production of all the major types of wines with a leaning towards Shiraz as a signature, and if you're looking to indulge your palate there are few better places in the country to do so.
 
Wine isn't the only focus of the Barossa Valley, however; its variety of hand-crafted and expertly-produced foodstuffs are also a major plus, with some truly outstanding rich cheeses, dried fruits, fresh meats, and pastries among other delights. Add to this the inherently scenic environment of undulating hills with expansive vineyards and a comfortable and mild climate, and it's well worth a visit. Given the sheer quantity of wineries that exist in the Barossa - and the fact that self-driving means having to monitor your alcohol consumption - day tours of the Barossa Valley are exceedingly popular and offer a highly efficient way to sample a decent cross-section of foodstuffs and wines.
 
With this you can call it a day and head back to your hotel for a nice sleep.

Day 23

On this day you can go for Art Gallery of SA, The Mt Lofty Lookout and Botanical Gardens.

Art Gallery of SA

(Source: OZinOH)
Art Gallery of South Australia is one of the country's best and most comprehensive displays of both old and new historical pieces, and remains a criminally underrated attraction in the heart of the city that can be experienced for FREE for general admission. Rooms in the gallery are grouped by theme rather than time period, and the attraction offers an outstanding permanent collection as well as an eclectic mix of rotating exhibitions varying by season. The gallery is open every day from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and lies just to the north of the centre of Adelaide in front of the North Terrace bus stop.

The Mt Lofty Lookout

(Source: piesgardiner)
After this you can head to Adelaide's preeminent lookout point with a visit to Mount Lofty. The peak, which lies in the Adelaide Hills (a lovely part of the region) around 20 minutes' drive from the CBD, offers a wonderful panorama of Adelaide and its green surrounds as well as other facilities such as a store, restaurant and bathroom. The summit can be reached via car - prepare to pay for parking at the top ($3 fee) - or, for the more ambitious among us, hiking up from Waterfall Gully via a tough yet rewarding track. The track features a well-constructed path and regular seating as well as cafes at each end along with regularly placed seats along the way for breaks, and takes roughly 1.5 hours each way with a leisurely pace.

Botanical Gardens

(Source: tarale)

The gardens offer an ideal balance between imported exotic plant life and native Adelaide flora and it's hard to match in terms of spots for a peaceful afternoon picnic in the Adelaide region.
 
With this you can call it a day and head back to your hotel for a nice sleep.

Day 24

On this day you can go for Kangaroo Island Tour.

Kangaroo Island

(Source: Matt Adams)
Kangaroo Island - widely considered to be one of Australia's most unique, diverse and wildlife-rich destinations - should be an essential item on any Adelaide itinerary, however due to its distance from the city centre requires a fairly significant investment of time, effort and money to reach. That effort is more than justified, as the blend of untouched wilderness, pristine waters, distinctive rock formations and rugged coastline make "KI" a true escapist destination. The sheer diversity that the island offers makes multi-day stays ideal, however the combination of price and limited schedules of most visitors has resulted in one-day itineraries being offered by tour operators.
 
Experiencing a taste of Kangaroo Island in a single day involves an early start as it's a combined 3-hour-ish road-and-ferry trip combo away from Adelaide regardless of if you're taking a tour or driving a rental car; alternatively, those with deeper pockets can visit via light aircraft which reduces the travel time to around 30 minutes in return for the damage to your wallet. The island is large, and some of its highlights are quite spread out (it's the 3rd largest island in Australia, after all); compacted itineraries thus aim to take you from point A to B and cover the essentials such as Seal Bay (home to both beautiful sands and a large population of Australian sea lions), the incredible Remarkable Rocks formations, the Flinders Chase National Park and various other must-see spots.
 
It can be a gruelling and tiring day worth of travel to cram into a day, but Kangaroo Island is still an unmissable spot for first-time visitors to the Adelaide region.
 
With this you can call it a day and head back to your hotel for a nice sleep as the next day you got your return flight.

Day 25

This is the last day of your stay in Adelaide and you got your return flight. Make sure you pack all the belonging carefully and reach airport at least three hours prior to your flight timings.
  
I hope the destinations mentioned, according to your interest will lead to a memorable trip. I wish you return with the most exciting experience and memories of your life. 
 
Wishing you an amazing trip!
