GBR - go or drop?

Jump to last reply

Hi. Currently a trip to Port Douglas and GBR is in the itinerary. Time is mid Oct. However after reading some reports about rough seas I am no longer sure if we should do this.

Reason - we have my parents 2 seniors who will get very tense, and I might get hysterical if it gets too rough I am quite ashamed to admit ( when we ventured into the Tasman sea on our Nz trip for about 5 minutes, I was desperate to get out, so really not sure 90 minutes under such circumstances) Husband would be the calm but not sure about our little girl, she might get influenced by my fear.

Nobody can predict what the weather would be like that day and yet it seems such a shame to go to Australia and not visit the reef. So quite torn about this.

What should we do? Go there and if good weather venture out to reef else replace with a visit to Daintree? Or just visit some other part of Australia instead?

If we do go it will be on Quicksilver.

Any thoughts on this?
