Hiya, furtraveller, and welcome to the forums! Feel free to ask if there's anything we can do to help you out while you're here.

What sort of beautiful places do you want to visit? If you're interested in nature then you'll need to head out of the cities a bit.

I'm not sure what's around Perth but Sydney has easy access to the Blue Mountains via train and those are gorgeous and full of waterfalls!
I think for Melbourne you might need to head out a little further from the city though... It's only a short drive (about two hours) from there to the Great Ocean Road though and that's worth a visit.

First thing you need to be remember when visiting Australia - most points of interest in Australia are quite far away. For example a trip from Sydney to the Blue Mountains is about two hours by train (1.5 hours by car if the traffic is good), and that is considered close by Australian standards.

Another thing to remember - the three weeks you are here are Australia's main school holiday - be prepared for large crowds. Particularly during the New Years Eve Fireworks when you are in Sydney - due to the large numbers of people that will be in the city on that night, the government will close off parts of the city on the 31st of December so it may be hard to travel around Sydney Harbour.

The three cities you mentioned (Perth, Sydney and Melbourne) have everything you would expect in a modern city: fine dining, nice bars, shopping centres, markets, zoos, aquariums, modern and colonial architecture, and reasonable public transport. Being on the coast (Sydney or near the coast (Perth & Melbourne), there are public beaches nearby as well.
From your comment, it sounds like you are more interested in seeing the natural environment and these cities have lots of places to see.

If you are looking for large public gardens, each city has a botanical garden near the city centre: If you are willing to travel further, there are National Parks usually just outside the city limits: If you are interested in museums or art galleries, there are quite a few to choose from. My personal preferences are: If you are still looking for places to see when you are here, you should go to the nearest visitor centre when you arrive (your hotel will be able to tell you where they are). The visitor centre will be able to tell you the best places to go in your area for what you are interested in, how to get there, what it will cost, etc. They are your best option when first visiting Australia.

I'm sorry, but I am not aware of any furry parties in Sydney on New Years Eve.
In any case, I wish you good luck and safe travels on your trip to Australia.
