I'm planning a 4 week vacation, and I'm hoping to get some detailed advice on my Northern portion of the trip.
Background: My boyfriend and I will be travelling, mid-20s, like to see and do many different things, like to be "on the go". Not "kid friendly" while on vacation. Travelling end of Nov. We are open to different types of transportation. Will most likely take a flight from Sydney to ... sunshine coast area?
Our temp. itinerary puts us in Sunshine coast area on Nov. 24 travelling north somehow to Cairns and then flying to Southern Australia. This gives us 10 days to hit all we need to hit.
Suggestions so far are:
Caloundra: 2 days
*maybe Elliot island*
Whitsundays Islands: 2 days
Cairns: 4 days
Daintree: 1 day
Cape Tribulation: 1 day
Interests include: I would like to hug a koala. Also, I hear that Steve Irwins Zoo is pretty cool. Surfing for a day, as is snorkelling and maybe a dive or two.
Can somebody help me pick apart this itinerary? We will be going during Schoolies week, and I'd like to avoid it as much as possible. I might be spending too much time in Cairns?
Thanks everyone!! You are all so nice! :)
