Australian Road Trip: Sydney to Melbourne

At the end of year, with only a few days to spare for the holidays, my hubby and I managed to squeeze in a mini road trip from Sydney to Melbourne. It was our first trip as newlywed couple and our last hurrah for the eventful 2011.

Instead of checking in at a fancy hotel or resort for our honeymoon, we found ourselves traipsing around the Parliament House in Canberra, hiking in the Snowy Mountains in New South Wales, paragliding over the Victorian Alps and welcoming the New Year in Melbourne.

We drove inland to avoid the crowded coast on the way to Melbourne. It was a short trip but we were able to rack up some exciting highlights. We could have spent the whole week at Mt. Kosciuszko National Park alone. But that calls for another trip, perhaps in winter when the skiing season kicks off.

Here’s a short video clip of our road trip.
