Indianapolis, Indiana, United States


      we have questions! First time trip, from Indiana. We have 10 days total, which boils down to 8 nights on the Continent of Australia when factoring in air travel from the U.S.

Q1: I hear about Stingers, but I don't know what they are?

Q2: what is the season for Stingers? We could come in late July or lat November. I am leaning toward late November for reasons that you'll see in later questions.

Q3: My initial plan was: 4 nights in Port Douglas, which would involve two days snorkeling the GBR, and one day to explore the Daintree rain forest. We would spend our 4th night in Port Douglas after a day in Daintree, next morning we would fly to Lady Elliot island and spend 3 nights there. Snorkel two days there. Fly to Sydney, take a train to Katoomba. Spend one night there, explore the entire next day and near dinnertime, take the train back to Sydney. Spend the night in Sydney and fly back to Indiana next day. Finally the question: this trip could happen late July or late November. I think November is better because Lady Elliot is colder waters than the Cairns area. Is it true that we could be on the GBR just walking off the beach at Lady Elliot? Am I over-rating that experience? Would we bet better off staying in Port Douglas for all of our four days of snorkeling?

Q4: Being a naive first-timer, what important logistics am I not aware of? Is my plan overall too aggressive? P.S. I have no interest in cities. Only nature. I'm not made of money and I realize Lady Elliot will not be cheap, but I also don't know how expensive airfare will be just to get on the island.

Q5: There will be three of us: me (age 56), my 16-year old, and my 20-year old. The 20-year old can sleep on a bed of nails, haha, he wouldn't care if he had a roll-away cot. What kind of room would you suggest for us at your place?
