Looking for a one-week getaway

My husband and I live in France (I'm Australian, he's French!) and he doesn't know Australia too well. Last time we were there, we stayed in Pt Douglas and visited the Daintree, went diving, did a safari tour etc. Anyway, he loves humid climates so this November I am thinking of taking him back to Qld, but what is there that's new to do? Given we cannot afford a luxury retreat (like Bedarra!), where can we go that won't be much like the last holiday? Our budget is about $200 per night ...

How about a complete change of state and going to Broome?

Maybe think of hervey bay/fraser island.It would be a total change from FNQ.The outrigger at hervey bay or kingfisher resort on fraser island should both be about right for the budget-you could split the stay between them.

there are quite a few posts on both these areas so a search should come up with a few ideas.
