Re:I'd add just one

Vajrasattva's list is excellent. I'd add just one and a couple of "maybes". If you drive down the Great Ocean Rd, go as far as Apollo Bay and ask a local how to get to Paradise. It is only 3-4km from the town centre. Magic place.--

Maybe consider the Sydney Harbour Bridge climb. It's excellent but pricey. You can't take a camera on the climb howwever (danger if it is dropped)

Maybe in Melbourne check the old banking chambers. In the 1880s Melbourne, riding on the gold discoveries, was the most expensive city in the world. Check the banking headquarters that were built at this time in Collins Street, especially the ANZ on the corner of Collins and Queens Street. It used to be the English, Scottish and Australian Bank when built. Those banks were awash with gold and it shows.
