Hi there, I have been searching through the reviews and forums and would like some advice on islands in the GBR.
We were planning a trip to Fitzroy Island during the first week of August 2009. The new resort looked upmarket and the surrounding beaches and diving/snorkelling looked pristine. We booked our flights to Cairns (from Sydney) and read in the paper last week that the resort has gone into receivership. Lucky for us we had only put a deposit down ($200) for our 6 night stay but it was disappointing all the same.
We are a couple looking for a quiet beach holiday with snorkelling off the beach. I see there are disadvantages to both: Green Island - Day trippers and Dunk Island: Voyages Resort (tired)/overrun with kids. Our budget will not stretch to Lizard/Bedarra/Wilson which all look beautiful. I understand that the period in August is not during school holiday so may be quieter?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
