Traveling to Australia for my first time in mid-August. Will be in Melbourne with about 5 days to play and trying to determine if it's worth going up to the GBR in that time. Questions:
1. Is it worth the travel time to get to GBR from Melbourne or is there something even more fabulous around Melbourne area?
2. What part of GBR is best for snorkeling/scuba?
Any and all tips appreciated!
