We have booked 7 nights at the Lakes in Cairns as part of a 6 week RTW trip in Nov. but are having 2nd thoughts & think Port Douglas might be a more suitable option. We would like suggestions for an apartment that is quite central, don't really want to have to hire a car. We have a good deal at the Lakes paying approx $AU 120 per night so looking for similar price range or a bit more. Any ideas? This week in North Queensland is supposed to be a relaxing week in a busy schedule so maybe Port Douglas would be a nicer option.
