We are a family of 5 looking to see the sights and experience Cairns/Port Douglas area. We have 2 kids-who like the outdoors and adventure and are looking for advice on our Itinerary.
We plan to stay at Sea Temple in Palm Cove area and rented a car:
Day 1: Arrive at 2PM-just drive to Sea Temple, check in and relax at resort and Palm Cove Beach for the day
Day 2: Reef tour to snorkel--looking at Seastar or Wavelength as the kids have only snorkeled once in Hawaii. Any advice as to which tour or should we do both? We were thinking we would like 2 days out on the GBR and liked both of these or possibly OceanFree as the Upulo Cay looks awesome.
Day 3: Daintree for the day to hike and see all the sites (Mossman gorge, etc)
Day 4: Relax in Cairns-see Esplanade/swim, shop
Day 5: Reef tour to snorkel-Day 2 (choose one of the other outfits)
Day 6: Kuranda train & cable car etc? Or just relax in Palm Cove? What about Hartley Croc tour?
Day 7: Return to Sydney
Anything you think we are missing with our kids? Thanks!!
