    • Great Barrier Reef - base location

      Cairns Oct 18, 2016 at 1:50 AM

      Hi - I'm travelling to Cairns for 5 days in the last week of December. This is the last leg of my holiday in Australia and we will be returning to London from Cairns. We are family of 3 with a 11 year old. We are interested in snorkelling and scuba diving in the outer reef and may be some watersports. Not keen on rainforest etc. I'm struggling to find a good base for the GBR exploration. Do I stay in Cairns and take one of the tours (will make it easier flight-wise) or do I stay in one of the beach resorts? Budget isn't a big consideration and a luxury option would be just fine. Many thanks for your help.

      Great Barrier Reef

      State of Queensland Oct 1, 2016 at 7:59 AM

      I am very interested in snorkeling (not scuba diving) the Great Barrier Reef. So far, I know the better time of the year would be between May and October. Does anyone know, specifically, when the best month to visit is? I'm concerned if there is any particular time when it's more dangerous such as more sharks are in the area because the water temperature changes. Thanks for your help!

    • Three Sisters Mountains

      by vilora04 Online Now Sep 26, 2004 at 8:24 AM

      I had the opportunity to visit Australia with a tour from American Airlines. A part of the tour was to visit the Blue Mountains and the famous Three Sisters. Unfortunately, the weather did not help at all. It was rainy and as foggy as you can imagine. When we stopped at the Three Sisters, we took the ride in the cable type car and back. Since the weather was so bad we did not have much time at all to see the souvenir store. I will like to know if there is a site of that store in particular where I can browse the merchandise and souvenirs. I really enjoy my trip Downunder, also visited Sydney, Brisbane. If someone can help with this information, I will really appreciate it. Vanessa Lora
