Me and my husband are planning on traveling from Cairns down along the coast towards Adelaide for a month starting in mid April 2012. Having never been to Australia we have lots of questions about the best way to get around and places to see. We are planning on going to the great barrier reef and spending some time in Queensland before heading down the coast. Any recommendations for trips/tours of the great barrier reef? And any other suggestions for places to stay and see along the way.
Our original plan was to rent a camper van and camp along the way, but after reading other posts, maybe this is not the best way to do it. Is it better to just rent a car versus a camper van? Any suggestions of companies to rent from? Any help is much appreciated. Thanks :)
