      Dinner recommendation

      Port Douglas Jul 4, 2014 at 11:54 PM

      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.

    • One day trip to Moreton Islands without booking any tour packages

      Moreton Island Jun 23, 2014 at 4:41 AM

      I am an individual (travelling alone) and planning to go to Moreton Islands from Brisbane but don't wish to book any tour packages as they are expensive and doesn't interest me. I don't have a 4WD and wants to see most of the place. Please suggest any suitable options and is it a good idea to go there on your own without a 4WD (which they say is a must).

      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 :)

    • Transportation from Great Keppel to Sydney

      by RhythmicVibe Online Now Oct 10, 2004 at 2:43 PM

      Hello all! My Contiki trip is ending at the Great Keppel Island on Oct 27th where they take us back to the mainland. The problem is I have to be back in Sydney to my hotel that day as well.....looks like I might have to cancel a day or two at the hotel just so I can get back to the Sydney airport in time Where can I get a flight that will take me back to Sydney? Hopefully it will be close to the mainland.......unfortunately, the Contiki brochure is not very clear where exactly on the mainland we get dropped off at. Also, it's very hard to get any help from the people at Contiki regarding this :(
