Would appreciate your advice on our upcoming visit to Australia Oct 19 -29. We are looking at staying at the Radisson TreeTop in PD, do you know it? We are looking for a moderately priced full service hotel for myself, hubby, and 11 yr old daughter. We want to use the hotel as a hub for day trips to DainTree and day snokeling trips on the Reef. We don't plan to spend much time hanging out at the hotel really.
We will be in sydney for 5 days and then up to Queensland for another 5. It looks like PD is a good place to stay away from the more crowded touristy places? What am I missing in my assessment of where to stay? Any other suggestions of how to spend our 5 days in that area? I see you do recommend a car, which is fine...but watch out for us left siders on the road!
In Sydney area I would like to take daughter to see koalas and kangaroos...when I was there once before we went to a place where you good touch both but I forget the name.
Any other ideas? With only 10 days (3 of which I am working), I don't want to cram to much in.
Also I assume we should fly from SYD to Cairns? any way to get cheap fares?
Thank you for any help you can give.
