My wife and I will be heading to Australia next month. Since that was the impetus for me to finally buy a D70, I want to make sure I get some great pictures. We'll be in Sydney, Uluru and Darwin.
Any suggestions at all are greatly appreciated.

Monkey Mia - probably too much out of the way (West Coast)

I was in Oz in '91 so I was just listing what I found interesting/fun. Hopefully most of the other attractions I mentioned are still there (at least the nature ones anyway).

Toronga Zoo
Old Victoria Building (shopping)

Who are you doing your course with? I spent a year teaching diving up there a while ago.

You'll have an absolute ball :)

Went with Cairns Dive Center they seem to have what I needed: a prescription mask, a recommendation from Joel from DiveTheReef.com (excellent person to deal with), and the course that fit my timeline
I'm so stoked :D

Hehehe... the opera house is fun....

Lot's of great angles - but you have to go to some lengths to do something with it no-one has done before.

If you can swing it you might want to try and get to the great barrier reef (i.e cairns) you may be able to get a cheap flight out of sydney up there... It is, after all, one of the 7 natural wonders of the world.

Cheers

If you get to Victoria don't forget to check out the Great Ocean Rd. It's amazing.

The trick is to get the clouds to co-operate
