I have been twice so far, and all I can recommend is to get out of the cities. Tasmania is spectacular, and the alps in eastern OZ are great, espacially in Victoria. Also, if you can get to Kosciuszko NP there is some great hiking and excellent photo ops. Oh, you might like Grampians NP too, it is kind of rugged terrain. Be prepared for ALL weather in November. It can be swealtering hot or fairly cool (especially if you go up in the "mountains") Also, I must say that November is a great time to go because you should miss the school holidays.
I'm already looking forward to your photos (and returning for that matter).

Hi Tareq, I'm just back from Australia where I was on last June. I found extremelly exciting the portion from Alice Prings to Ayers Rock but if you plan to stay at Melbourne then I definitely recommend you to drive towards the Great Ocean Road. Plan a stop at Apollo Bay, the 12 Apostoles areas (where also the London Bridge is). There is an hotel right into the 12 Apostoles coast but don't know about costs. I definitely don't recommend to think on Apollo Bay for the night and leaving very early in the morning to reach the 12 Apostoles for the surise because it's roughly 100km away and the road is not easy at all especially in the night with a lot of wids animals hunting for food (by the way November is a great moment to photograph such coast as the sunrise point fits perfect and will illuminate the reef!). Moreover you would need of a local expert guide to bring you in some viewpoint which will fit at the best your need to get pictures. Please note that it's not safe at all to go alone along the coastline out from the "official" path as there are wholes and the ground is not steady at all.
Something more to consider is to have a short run with elicopter to take aerial pictures (landing area right close the 12 Apostoles parking place).
With regards wild-life photos I definitely recommend you to go to Kangaroo Island. You can even reach the island by car but it takes a couple of days at full speed!
I hope the above will help you and in case you need more please let me know.
You can see some of the pictures I took over such trip from the below link (ple<se note that not all of them are taken on South Australia)

You should go to the GoldCoast as you love Landscapes and nature mostly. It is really fun loving place.
