Hi gang. Both I and my wife will be landing in Cairns on Saturday July 19th and we'll leave to NZ on Friday 25th.
I've read many different things regarding Cairns and Port Douglas and to be honest I'm still undecided what to do/where to stay.
We will have a car so moving around it's not a problem. We're in our mi 30s, very active and sport oriented. We love nature and photography as well.
With the obvious GBR trip, which as far I know has boats departing from both places, where shall we have our headquarters aka hotel for our 6 nights? Cairns or Port Douglas?
From what I read, Cairns is more a party place while PD is more relaxed. Is this accurate?
Any advice is much appreciated.
Thank you in advance :)
