Hello... Hopefully I'll be visiting relatives in Melbourne for Christmas, and since I'm in Europe, I'm planning on staying three weeks, it seems like the minimum for such a far away place. I won't want to stay with the family all the time, so do you have any suggestions? I was vaguely thinking of taking a plane to Queensland (beaches!!!) but I've never been there and don't have many ideas. (I only know Melbourne and a little Sydney.)

if you like beaches and surfing go to Goldcoast...which is about a 40 minute drive(If I'm not mistaken. Been there too many years ago) or more from Brisbane. And since it's the summer there now...you should have a lot of fun.
I hate everything and everyone.

if u can be arsed....far north queensland..port douglas is amazing...the great barrier reef, the daintree forest, plenty to do and see....otherwise for a more party vibe maybe head to byron bay near sydney....heaps of fun to be had...but the wildlife is limited to the human variety....
