Hi, my partner and I plan to travel 3.5 weeks between Cairns and Brisband from 27 October (last long vacation as a couple cause we're expecting a baby in April :)
Among other things, we want to go snorkelling at the Great Barrier Reef and do one whale-watching trip somewhere. Our question is whether we should go from North to South (maybe less stingers in late October?) or from South to North (cause whale-watching at Hervey Bay apparently ends end-October?).
What's your experience?
Do 2-3 weeks (late Oct vs. mid-November) make a big difference with regard to stingers in the GBR?
Are there other good whale-watching spots in North Queensland if Hervey Bay doesnt offer tours anymore in November?
