Thank you all for the suggestions. We Hopefully soon I can sit down and list what and where we want to go now...using all the good ideas posted and decide which is the most economical way to go!
I love the planning almost as much as the traveling....almost!
I have read your other thread as well and I am guessing that by now you are realising that you will not need a car for the sightseeing in Sydney.
Just get an apartment or hotel central to Darlington Harbour or the Quay area and it's is very easy to do a combination of the HOHO bus, taxi, ferry and walking. You would need at least two days to do the Sydneys highlights.
Then just get a car for when you are driving out of Sydney and maybe like you said might want to book hotels on the way.
As you like researching and your husband likes driving, maybe it is an idea to decide on how far from Sydney you would be driving (sort of like deciding on a circle of area). Then research what is available in that area and then pick the places that interest the both of you.
But I would not forgo discovering Sydney. It is a interesting place to visit and a great city for sail-away.
