Husband and I are traveling next April. We're both in our 50's and trying to relax a bit in between Sydney and Queenstown, New Zealand. We would love to snorkel but do not scuba dive. Our travel agent suggested Port Douglas because we can snorkel as well as explore the rainforest.
We just had friends who stayed Hamilton Island....we can't do both, so I'm just wondering if anyone has a suggestion - if you can only visit GBR for 3 days, would you choose to stay on the mainland at Port Douglas, or stay on one of the islands? All travel agent has told me is "they're completely different."
thanks for your input!
