      We will be in Port Douglas for our 10th wedding anniversary in early August and would like to have a special dinner on the special day. Cost isn't an issue, but we will have our 16 month old daughter with us so it needs to be a child-friendly place. No kids menu necessary as she just eats off my plate. I would appreciate any suggestions for which restaurant.

      Snorkelling with a 1 year old

      Port Douglas Jul 4, 2014 at 11:35 PM

      My husband and I are going to Port Douglas to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary in early August. We will have our 16 month old daughter with us too. We would love to go for a day trip snorkel tour. I'm looking for advice about the best tour, considering the type of boat and destination.

      We will be staying in Port Douglas for 7 nights and Cairns for 2 nights, so preference would be to do the day tour from Port Douglas. Obviously we will take turns snorkelling as one of us will need to look after Siena. I know there are 2 types of tours - one type is just on a boat for the whole day and the other type is a boat trip to an island where you can snorkel off the shore. I like the idea of the island since it means Siena can run around and play at the water's edge while one of us snorkels, however I don't want to go with this option if the coral isn't as spectacular as snorkeling off a boat only tour if you know what I mean. These tours are not cheap, so I want to make sure we get to see some amazing coral. I've seen some of the tours that go to an island advertise glass bottom boats, which could be good for Siena but she is also very young and won't really understand what she is seeing. Siena is generally content anywhere she can run around (supervised of course) so any feedback about specific boats would be appreciated. Our entertainment book has a discount for tours with Silver Series, so any specific feedback about their tours would be great (that is a boat only tour).

      Thanks in advance.

    • Working and Holiday Visa - Show Money

      Australia Jun 29, 2014 at 10:47 AM

      I am a US citizen that is soon to apply for a working visa at Aus. My girlfriend's family in Aus have sponsored the visa payments and I don't have that much money to even make it to the "5000 AUD" bracket as a show money of sustainability.

      My question is: can I use the bank statement on their end including a letter from them as a proof of finance since I'll be staying on them? This is my viable option as of now since I don't have the nerve yet to demand from them to have the show money in the meantime just to get through. And if that's not possible, is it by chance enough to have the show money on my bank account even if it was just deposited a few days before the arrival on the immigration? And lastly, do I need to have the bank statement ready with the big amount before applying online?

      I honestly don't know my options on this dilemma and I'll appreciate it if someone can guide me through.

    • Advice for traveling in WA

      Exmouth Jul 5, 2014 at 10:49 AM

      Hi everyone,
      My husband and I are from England and beginning in September we are starting a round the world trip for 3 months to celebrate my 70th birthday.
      As part of the trip we are traveling in WA for 5 weeks hiring a camper van for that period.
      Our intention is to travel from Perth to Exmouth and back. From what I have read the West coast is not highly populated and I was wondering about buying petrol and the towns where we can buy it, wouldn't want to run out that would be a nightmare.
      Also what are the best places to stock up on food and supplies.
      Should we book our campsites before we go or will this not be a problem booking as we go.
      We pick up the van on the 29th October for 5 weeks.
      Our main interests are snorkeling and walking.
      Oh we are not allowed to take our campervan off unsealed roads but would love to get some walking in the national parks.
      Any advice and suggestions for our trip would be highly appreciated.
      Jean

      need help with trip planing

      Cairns Jun 24, 2014 at 7:22 AM

      hello there! my husband and i are planing our honeymoon in australia in september. we will be based in sydney but my greatest desire is to visit great barrier reef. so i chose cairns as a base because i've heard there are situated most companies for GBR. we plan to stay in cairns maybe 2-3 or 4 days max. during that time i'd like to see something else in the surrounding area, and i've been surfing for interesting things for a while now and i only got frustrated and confused - there are SO many things to see and do there! its so hard to pick which ones to go during those few days.

      so what i'm really looking for are suggestions, what should we take? we are on a bit of a budget too, but still, apart form GBR it seems to me that Daintree rainforest is and interesting site to see as well. also some whitewater rafting is said to be good as well. whitsundays are beautiful also and apparently can't be missed..
      i was looking for GBR tours and some of the major companies are situated in port douglas. is it better to be based in port douglas rather than cairns?

      i'm completely lost :-(

      we are looking for active holiday, i don't really care much about swiming pools, sunbathing or the "lazy" activities, we prefer seeing as much of australia as possible.

      thanks :)
