    Default Expand my horizon - short, kid free holiday ideas...

    Hi all!

    Hubby and I have a few kid free days up our sleeves to celebrate our 10th anniversary.

    We are brainstorming what we should do, but we can't seem to get past 'go to major city and see a show'. The only shows showing are Annie and A Chorus Line, and we are not too keen on either...

    So anyway, what better way to look outside the square than here?

    Here are a few things
    •We have 3 or 4 days
    •Not TOO expensive, but we have a little but to play with
    •We aren't really the *cultural* type - art galleries and museums are kinda boring to us - that science museum is up our alley, but we have been there.

    Thanks in advance trusty hubbers!

    Come to Sydney...heaps to do here!!! There are always diff shows playing but lots of other things like Harbour Bridge Climb, go up the tower, new Madame Tussauds, The Star casino has just been revamped...get a macaron at Adriano Zumbos cafe underneath! Shopping, see a movie at Imax, go on a tour out to the Blue mountains, brunch and markets at Bondi, ride the ferris wheel at night in Luna Park...so much more!!

    P&O do short 3 day cruises too as another idea. Sometimes they are themed like food and wine cruise etc.

    I can spend days in Melbourne walking, eating and drinking.

    Uluru or Kakadu, perhaps? I got the impression you wanted an alternative to just visiting a big city.

    Depending on where you are travelling from you can usually get great prices for flights to Cairns and it is really lovely there. And warm.

    I would highly recommend Kuala Lumper. It's an 8 hour flight from Brisbane, and if you book with Air Asia it's often cheaper than flying to Melbourne!

    We stayed there on our way to Europe and loved it. So much shopping to be had, and everything is so cheap!
