The main tourist spots so you can tell the folks back in the old country that you have actually seen them

The really wild spots - the Kimberleys, Katherine, northern coast of WA, Cape York. Tasmania, if you've not been there. I want to visit places like Coober Pedy, and Kalgoorlie, just to see what they are like, as I know they will be soooo different from anywhere else.

Look at the sun because we havent seen it for 3 years and we now believe its an urban myth that the uk gets summers.

It was definitely there the first week of Wimbledon last year because I was in the country and it was beautiful - just like a Queensland winter

Actaully, having dived at many sites around the world myself, I'd be more than happy to skip the GBR. I found it a bit disappointing. A much more interesting dive I found was right there in Port Philip Bay, where we saw Seahorses & Sea Dragons. You can also swim with dolphins there in the bay.

I'd also agree with Uluru & Sydney harbour (bridge & opera house) and I'd also throw in the great ocean road betwen Melbourne & Adelaide and the pinnacles desert North of Perth.
