we are a group of 8 adults and 6 children ( 4 families) and will be traveling to cairns for 4 nights . excluding the days of travel we have 3 full days. age of the children ranging from 3 to 12 yrs.
for accommodation we are looking for 3 family rooms (which can accommodate 2 adults and 2 children) and one double room.
our budget is 150 to 250 AUD per family per night for accommodation.
we plan to visit the GBR for snorkeling. one day for kuranda.
which would be the best place to stay cairns, palm cove or port douglas?
in these places which area should we stay and any recommendation with regards to hotels/ resorts/rentals.
we haven't decided if we are going to rent cars/vans (need help with that too), but would prefer if shops /restaurants etc are within walking distance.
