Hey everyone! Me and my cousin have planned a 13 day holiday in Australia and have already booked all our domestic tickets. Our schedule is as follows for June 2012:-
17th & 18th: Gold Coast
19th & 20th : Byron Bay
21st, 22nd, 23rd: Sydney
24th & 25th: Ayers rock
My questions are:-
1) We were just wondering whether it would be a good idea to scrap gold coast and to go to Cairns instead from the 17th - 18th (We have accommodation paid for and booked in Byron Bay for the nights of 19th and 20th already).
I'm only arriving in Gold Coast at 11.30am on the 17th and have to fly to Cairns from Brisbane. Would it be worthwhile to book flight tickets to Cairns just to spend a night at the GBR and then head back to brissy & byron bay?
My cousin is coming all the way from USA and would love to see the GBR, even if it's just to snorkle for a few hours then fly out. Is that a good idea?
2) In June, would the water be too cold to surf/swim in Gold Coast? What activities do you suggest?Edited: 3:53 am, June 05, 2012
