Going on a day trip to Lady Elliot Island


We are a family of four (kids 10 and 6). We are staying in Hervey Bay for 5 nights around New Years' this year.

Right now I am thinking of spending two whole days in Hervey Bay, and then for a day trip to Lady Elliot Island for either 30. Dec. or 1. Jan., and a day trip to Fraser Island on the other day.

Is 1. Jan. a good day to do one of these trips? I am used to US, where "everyting" is opened 24/7, but I have heard that in Australia stores are closed on 25. and some 26. Dec.

All feedback is appreciated.
