Hi we are a couple in our early 30s and we will be visiting Cairns for the first time in the first week of September. This will be our babymoon as I will be 23weeks pregnant by then.
We are trying to decide between staying in Cairns or Port Douglas. PD sounds wonderful as it seems to have more of a tropical feel we are after but will it be warm enough to swim in the ocean? And we are also very scared of running into a croc when we are on the beach or something. Are we being ridiculous?
Cairns seems great as well but with more of a city feel I am guessing? It also seems far away from places like Daintree.
Would we be better off staying in a hotel with nice pools in Cairns or staying in PD?
We would also like to avoid renting a car if possible.
We are planning on snorkeling at GBR and taking a tour to Daintree so please recommend us some good companies to go with.
Any other tips or advice will be greatly appreciated.
