Jellyfish (Stingers) Cairns / GBR

My wife and I are planning a trip to the Great Barrier Reef in via Cairns in late Oct early Nov 2013. We just read all about the dangerous Jellyfish that arrive around that time of year. This makes us extremely nervous and we wonder if we should go somewhere else for vacation. We have read about the stinger suits and staying inside the net areas near the beach, but we are still worried about the damage these deadly creatures can inflict. We don't want to be nervous the entire trip!

Can anyone offer their thoughts on the subject? Do the "stingers" ruin the trip? Are their numbers less during the Oct/Nov months?

Thank you in advance for any advice. This site and its bloggers have always been a huge help to me!

Hi Travelguy,

hope that makes you feel better!

seriously, we're going to northern queensland in November, and though we are going to follow the advice about jellyfish, we're not overly worried about them.

at least we weren't til we read your post.
