A comprehensive itinerary is more suitable if you are including booked flights, tours, accommodation etc. and you are running to a schedule.

Your itinerary would need to include all the information for your bookings and also include towns, places, activities you would also like to see or do for each day or at different destinations.

It is best to keep you itinerary 'realistic', it is very easy to fill your itinerary with sightseeing & activities and be so busy that you won't be enjoying your Australian holiday.

For each destination make a list of the main things you would like to see and do, research before you travel and when you get there then select your best options.

It is usually better to see a few things properly rather than see a many places for a short time, but this depends entirely on what kind of holiday, where you are and how long you have to travel.

For example a road trip will give you many opportunities to stop often and visit places or just to take photos. Maybe you are staying at each town or place for a week giving you plenty of time for sightseeing and activities.
