From http://www.ferrylines.com/en/ferries/ferries-in-the-black-sea/ it would seem to be NO, but it does indicate you could travel to Bulgaria. Aussies don't need a visa for Bulgaria, so you could then take a train up to Bucharest from within Bulgaria. Bucharest to Istanbul is 16 hours, so from Bulgaria wouldn't be a long trip.

I found a newspaper article about Istanbul countryside. This is: Ditching the guidebook to explore the green and pleasant lands around Istanbul. Excerpts: ... Just two hours away from the former capital of the Roman Empire, serene Lake Sapanca's welcoming 40km shoreline tempts picnicing travellers and boutique spa hotels make for a beautiful ...

I think you just need to dig a bit deaper into the NavBul website! From their Ferry page: Two identical ferryboat vessels operated by NAVIBULGAR ("Geroite na Sevastopol" and "Geroite na Odesa") each with total carrying capacity of 108 waggons/900 cars/100 motor trucks up to 16m length operate the regular lines: Varna - Ilichevsk - Varna Varna ...

Get a Lonely Planet. Or a few digital chapters from their online store. Probably the best place to start. Wikitravel is a good resource, but lacking on more obscure destinations. Unless you have boatloads of time and assuming you're traveling overland, skip Egypt. There's no easy way to get there from the northern mediterranean, unless you fly. Buses in ...

I am a UK citizen and have visited Russia, Turkey and Georgia recently (only came back from Georgia 2 weeks ago - via Turkey). It is safe to visit Istanbul (apart from the usual risks associated with being a tourist in an unknown city) and it is safe to visit Moscow. If you want to visit both on one trip, I would strongly recommend that you fly between ...

There's a pretty little seaside village not far from Istanbul called Trilye (also known as Zeytinbağı) near the town of Mudanya, on the south shore of the Marmara Sea. Trilye is easier to get to than Abant or Sapanca if you are starting from Istanbul's Atatürk Airport. If you are flying to Sabiha Gökçen Airport, then the reverse is true. It's a good idea ...

Travelling from Istanbul to Moscow overland is adventurous at best. For example, there's a big country between the two places called the Ukraine. Assume you take the Asian route, you will almost certainly pass near Kharkiv border and other hot spots along the border of eastern Ukraine. These would include Donetsk and Lugansk. Anywhere near those ...

With a quick search I found a flight to Istanbul with 92 euros per person (tax included) close to the dates you gave. 2. From Istanbul to Greece It depends which parts of Greece you want to visit.

I'm assuming you'll update the question, but one site that definitely helps find ways to get around is Wikitravel. I found it invaluable the last few years for all types of countries, and transport. For example, you could look at a particular country, or even look at something like Rail Travel in Europe.
