Just have a couple of questions to ask...
1. When is it best to visit Port Douglas/Cairs during Jan and Feb? Should we leave it till the very end of Feb to try and dodge some rain? I have read it is the rainy season and stinger season up there during this time.
2. During stinger season, can you still go out to the reef for the day snorkling trips? Is it safe?
3. Rains - will the be constant for a few days or does it rain for a couple of hours then get sunny again?
4. Accommodation - Port Douglas [Hibiscus Gardens Spa Resort] or Cairns [The Lakes Cairns Resort and Spa]?? Both places are offering packages with breakfast and some tours for ~1500 7 nights.
I'm a little nervous about the time we have chosen to go now... :(
Thanks for any help or advice you can offer,
Ashley & Richard
