2 week family trip in Australia

Hello, I am currently backpacking for a year in Australia but my family are planning on coming out to see me for 2 weeks in April 2018 from the U.K. They are flying into Sydney.

My question is what would be the best way to see as much as possible in 2 weeks? What are the vital things we should try and see? Does anyone have any tips or a guideline to an itinerary? Any help would be greately appreciated. I would love to make it extra special for us all.

Thank you in advance :)

I'm not sure why you posted this question in the St Kilda branch of the forum.

Anyway, there are some great suggestions in this thread. You won't be able to do/see them all in 2 weeks


Make a shortlist, fly between key destinations, and don't forget to apply sunscreen

Two weeks, good luck. You could spend three days in Sydney, a day in the Blue Mountains. Fly down to Melbourne. Spend three days there. A day on Philip Island, three days on the Great Ocean Road. Two days in the Grampians and then you have a day or so spare.

You asked this same question in the Australia forum (which is a better choice than the St. Kinda forum) and you got some useful info:
