I am planning a trip to Australia and NZ for my honeymoon. Our travel agent based on times and not wanting to have so many layovers between locations has proposed 6 nights in Queenstown, NZ than 7 nights in Port Douglas, and lastly 5 nights in Sydney.
Do you think 7 nights in middle of January in Port Douglas is too long? We will want a few days to relax on the beach/hotel pool and do nothing but planning on 1 day to Outer Reef Cruise, 1 day Daintree Rainfores. Any other suggestions on what to do see?
We were not planning on having a car either, is that an issue?
Any suggestions on hotels that have a good location and good pool/accommodations?
Right now we are looking at the Sea Temple Port Douglas as our first choice but also looking at Shantara or Thala Beach Lodge.
Any suggestions/advice would be greatly appreciated.
