Sounds great TDW,

We have just started venturing further afield in baby steps, Port Stephens is going to be next, Jervis Bay shortly there after.....

When we reboat the plan is Queensland/GBR to shakedown, and then depending on time/money/how we are finding it all, we would do a similar loop to what your thinking turn right at Cairns and go Louisiades, Solomons, Vanuatu, New Cal and then home.

There is a thought of going from here to Lord Howe as a shakedown. However Lord howe to me is far scarier than 3 months of sailing up to Cairns. It is essentially 400ish nms of Tasman Sea. For beginners like us that isn't a small feat.
