Sydney to Carins / Brisbane to Carins

Postby merle » Sat Dec 29, 2012 9:34 am

Hi there,

Just out of curiosity, I am interested in who else is going on the trip Sydney to Cairns / Brisbane to Cairns in February (arrival Cairns on February 24th)?
I am also wondering if anyone is interested in going to Cape Tribulation right after the trip (Feb 24th)? Just for a day or two... It's supposed to be absolutely gorgeous and it's just a 2 hour drive from Cairns....

I would appreciate some responses.

Hi Merle,
i believe we will be travelling together. I am starting in Sydney with the "most of the coast" tour on Feb. 10th....and can't wait to go... I am leaving directly on the 24th, so unfortunately I won't be able to extend for a Cape Triblulation trip.
Cheers,

Hey guys,

I'm also doing this tour (most of the coast 10-24 Feb) and really looking forward to it!

I have an extra day in Cairns and have booked a day trip to the Agincourt Reef but I'm thinking of changing my plans as a friend has recommended going to Cape Tribulation too. Have you booked anything?

Hi,

I have not yet booked anything, I just have a flight from Cairns to Sydney on Monday (Feb 25) early in the afternoon, so that'd give my about 1,5 days for a trip to Cape Tribulation. As it is just a 2 -2.5 hour drive it should be fine... I could also travel back to Cairns on my own in case anyone likes to spend more time up North.

Looking really forward to the trip also (although I "just" do the Brisbane to Cairns part).

Hey,

I'm flying back to Sydney on Monday too and am thinking of doing a day trip to Cape Trib and staying in Cairns:

This trip looks quite nice. But 200 bucks for a day trip?? Not sure if I'd like to pay that...
Alternatively, I thought of renting a car and just stop at any nice spot on the way to the Cape. If we share the costs it should be quite reasonable, and after the G Adventures trip to Cairns, it might even be nice to do a non-guided tour (no fixed agenda)... I also thought of spending the night from Sunday to Monday in Port Douglas or so and then head back to Cairns airport Monday morning.
Lemme know what you decide.
