If you want to extend your trip with a few days relaxing on the beach, I'd second the vote for Moorea.

I also use lots of ziplock bags, mostly to keep things organised, but it's amazing how many uses they have on the road, too.

Actually the Blue Mountains is well supplied with good B&Bs etc, and it would be easy to pick up a hire car and do it yourself. Did you have a particular reason for wanting to do a tour?
