My husband and I lived in Australia for 3 years,
and it’s truly one of the most amazing countries in the world.
The Great Barrier is the largest in the world,
but it’s so much more!!
Best Place to Stay: Staying in the Great Barrier Reef at a high end resort like Lizard Island Resort is a dream, and gives amazing options for nonstop enjoyment of the reef.
Recommended Tour Companies: Taking a private yacht to the reef for a snorkeling or scuba trip is ideal, but Quicksilver is an amazing tour company for the perfect experience.
Great Escapes: Cape Tribulation and the Daintree Rainforest is within an hour drive from Port Douglas, a launching point for the Great Barrier, and just as stunning as the reef.. If you want to explore more of this part of Australia…this is the place for you.
Tips & Tricks: Qantas Airlines runs specials of visiting 2 or 3 different cities within the country and/or 2-3 stops anywhere around the world. When flying from the US, French Polynesian Islands is a perfect halfway stop to adjust to time change. [See Moorea]
