I really need your help. I land in Cairns tomorrow with a working holiday visa for a year.
I originally planned to stay in Cairns to look for work and then after a few months work my way down the east coast.
However, I have just got a great job in Perth starting 21st July to end of September.
So now I plan to work my way from Cairns to Brisbane taking about 10days/2weeks before flying Brisbane to Perth. As I was expecting to have a lot more time I am totally unprepared in my research and now going to be stuck on a flight too!
I definitely want to dive the Great Barrier Reef (I am an advanced diver so would like to use that and ideally go to a really good dive site)
I also definitely want to do the Whitsundays and Fraser Island.
i'm interested in doing a skydive but it's not necessary.
I plan on buying a hop on/off Greyhound pass from Cairns to Brisbane.
Is it best to dive the reef from Cairns? Or from further south?
Just wondering if anyone can give me some advice as I'd like to get on the road in a couple of days!
