My flight arrives in Melbourne today after a Friday night departure from NYC.
Hang out in Melbourne
Spend the day in Melbourne and fly to Sydney in the evening.

Early flight to Queenstown, New Zealand from Sydney.
Wine tour through Central Otago Wine country with Appellation Wine Tours. Taking the boutique tour which will pick me up from my hotel at 11am. At 4:45pm, there's an orientation for the hike that departs the next day at The Station Building in the center of town.
Today starts the first of 5 days withough access to phone or internet. First day of hiking trip, but it's light on hiking. We take a bus to Te Anau, and take a short nature hike nearby.
First full day of walking (10 miles).
9 miles hiking today, and over the Mackinnon Pass. At the end of the day, there's a shorter hike to Sutherland Falls, one of the highest waterfalls in the world.
Last day of hiking, and it's the longest trek (13 miles).
Final day of hiking trip, with no hiking, but a possible helicopter ride (weather permitting) and a cruise on the Milford Sound. I should arrive back in Queenstown around 4pm and I'll have phone & internet access again.
Fly back to Sydney where I'll meet up with Elle & Lachlan who are in town for a conference. I'll stay with them this night at an AirBnB, tbd.
Elle & Lachlan leave Sydney this day and I stick around for the weekend to explore. I have my own AirBnB in Surry Hills, which is a neighborhood (suburb) in Sydney.
