I think we might include a trip up to this area to do some diving on the GBR, so just wondering if one area is nicer than the other in terms of local beaches/scenery? Or does one area have more in terms of places to pick up food, grab a bite to eat?
When I started looking I thought they were the same place, but now that I see they are on different sides, not sure where to stay. I'm assuming the dive trips will pick up from both as the look quite close.
Overall is this a good area to spend a few days? (I think we're cutting out the Whitsundays for this... a little nervous to do that but just getting concerned about the weather in Whitsundays for January and the sailing trip we have booked is not cheap either).
