I will be traveling to FNQ in Oct. Plan is to stay in Port Douglas for 3 nights and in the tablelands for another 3 night.
I am trying to decide which flight to take to Cairns from Sydney. I first thought that I should get to Cairns as early as possible, but now I am not so sure. I'm presuming that if we land around 10 or 11, we likely won't have time to go on any tours to the GBR or to Daintree. Is there enough to do around Port Douglas to keep ourselves entertained or should we try to get a flight that gets in a little later, like 2 or 3pm?
