Yeah, I really want to go, but finding a time spot in our winter that allows me to visit and explore the nation is hard - and two weeks isn't really enough for me, especially not when 4 days are lost going there and back

Two weeks isn't enough that's for sure. IMO the best way to come to Australia from Europe is to have a stopover in Asia somewhere to break up the very long flight. Say stop in India, Singapore, Bangkok, Hong Kong or wherever you like for a night or two, and then continue with your journey to Oz. You'll feel much more refreshed on arrival and you would have added another 'dimension' to your trip also. That's the way I'd recommend you do it anyway!!

I share this sentiment. Two things have always kept me from visiting Australia: TIME and MONEY! I want to go there so badly, but being from the US where we only get two weeks of vacation per year from our jobs and it is just sooo far away. I'm not rich either, so I travel on a budget and flights there are very expensive too.
