We fly into Cairns and were going to spend 5 nights at the Lakes before going to the suggested Mandalay or we are looking into the Outrigger Beach. Or the other alternative, in order not to unpack twice was to stay in Palm Cove, halfway, I believe for the whole 11 nights.
Do you think we could service both area's like this, as we will be picking a car up from the airport? Or should we take transfers to the hotels, and opt for the organised day trips including travel? I guess main disadvantage is that we will need to drive out in different directions each eve/for day trips to different beaches.
Thanks again, Siobhan
