    • Living in Port Douglas

      Port Douglas Apr 18, 2014 at 4:51 AM

      Hi, there is a possibility myself and my family will be moving to Port Douglas. I will start by saying it looks stunningly beautiful there. My concern is the wildlife - crocodiles, snakes etc? May sound far fetched - sorry, but where I will be coming from we have no crocodiles, tree snakes etc. Can I expect to see a lot of crocodiles, snakes, frogs etc? and will I see any or many in my house / yard?

    • Driving/staying on Fraser Island

      Fraser Island Mar 27, 2014 at 8:53 AM

      My husband, 3 children and I will be travelling to Queensland in November and would like to go to Fraser Island. We will have a rental car and will be staying on the Sunshine Coast (possibly in Noosa). Can we take our rental car to the island or are we better to walk on the ferry or take an organized tour? Not sure if we should go just for the day or stay overnight? Appreciative of any advice! Thanks!

      Daintree Rainforest Visit with a 1 year old

      State of Queensland Apr 2, 2014 at 2:40 PM

      Hi VTers!

      I have been doing a lot of reading on the Daintree Rainforest. Little did I know that there are so many different areas to explore! It seems like these all offers different things to see in the rainforest, but my main concern is that we will have a 1 year old with us. I am trying to determine if there is an area that will be easier for us to visit with him. We will most likely have to carry him. As much as we would like to do a hike through the rainforest, I don't think that will be possible, but we would definitely like to see as much of the environment as we can.

      Cape Tribulation has caught our eye, but the Daintree Discovery Centre and Mossman Gorge Center also sound like they provide good options for traveling with a young child.

      We will have a rental car 4WD. 

      Any help is greatly appreciated!

      Thanks so much, Kimberly

      2) Glass house mountain (1/2 day enough?)
      3) Fraser Island day tour (Which tour agency is recommended? But seems like alot of time will be spend on travelling as Caloundra is quite far out from Fraser Island). So might not go ahead with Fraser Island.

      5) Blackall range
      6) King's Beach (1/2 day enough?)
      7) Eumundi Market (Wednesday AM), where to proceed next from Eumundi market?

      Whale watching

      by JohanIsWeg Online Now Jul 2, 2009 at 9:22 PM

      Wife's birthday coming up and she'd like to go whale watching in Hervey Bay. Number of whale watch operators, all of which I'm sure will be quite adequate and professional. However, I was wondering if anyone could advise of personal experiences on any of the following tours and their recommendations:
      Tasman Venture, Spirit of Hervey Bay, Quick Cat II, that's Awesome, Mikat, Whalesong, Blue Dolphin, Shayla and Volante III.

      Any recommendations on best time of day? Some info I've got says in the morning for calmer seas, others say in the afternoon for increased whale activity.

      While the "season" starts mid-July and finishes end-November, when would the best time be?

      Appreciate any inputs! Thanks.

      I've heard that the owner of seven nightclub gets realy drunk then wrecks the night by giving a long and boring speech on drugs and alcohol. every one that i have spoken to that has been there says that most of the workers are realy rude and unplesant. "If it wasn't for the DJ's the club would be nothing" is the comment that i hear commonly.

      Need urgent help! Hervey Bay hostel

      by tomli0829 Online Now Feb 18, 2007 at 4:51 AM

      Hi , I don't know how to choose among Next Backpackers, Aussie Woodshed and The Friendly Hostel. They all look good! Any advise please? We are a couple, want to book private room with ensuite. This is our first time travelling to Hervey then to L.E. Island, no car so it would be better to stay close to everything. During our stay in Hervey Bay, we want to go fishing as well.

      Hope someone can give me ideas.

      Many thanks!
