Looking for some initial guidance. We probably have about 16 days from mid January and thinking of heading to WA (from Melbourne) and then up North. Family consists of 12 year old daughter and 10 year old son, Mrs Haggis and I.
Options are to hire camper and drive on up as far as Exmouth, or hire a car and stop at hotels, or fly to Learmonth, hire car/camper and drive back to Perth.
Beaches, chilling out and the chance to see the reef appeal (we love Queensland and GBR).
Howeverm, will the weather be too hot at this time of year ? Is it worth waiting until later in the year when the whale sharks are in town (so to speak). Is there enough on the route to keep the kids interested ?
All comments, hints, tips etc will be very greatly appreciated.
