I am hoping someone could assist me with information as I am sending two older ladies (60s and 70s) on a 5 night holiday to Palm Cove mid February. I have only ever been there in Jun-August period so I am not sure how to advise them in regards to stingers, jelly fish, swimming at the beach on the reef (they will be going on a Quicksilver day trip) etc.
Can anyone please advise how safe it is to swim at the beach or at the reef (if at all)
Also, the place we are considering them staying at is The Reef Retreat, and I was wondering if anyone has been there and can offer any comments.
PS: Does anyone have contact details for where I could pre-organise car hire for them for a day trip to the Gorge, Daintree etc.
