N Qld in October

I plan to spend about a month in Queensland from mid October, starting at Cairns/PD, and making my way down to the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane area. Is this too late for a tour to the Cape York Peninsula? Are the box jellyfish on the beaches in N Qld by then? Any suggestions for inexpensive accommodation in the PD area for a single traveler who likes his comforts but doesn't want to stay in a luxury resort?

October you should be fine for jellyfish. They are supposed to appear from November to May. Port Douglas beach will have a netted enclosure, anyway. Most of the accommodation in Port Douglas is new and high quality, there are also a couple of baclpacker hostels but not much in between. There are a couple of motels on the main road into town but they will be the best part of A$100 a night. How inexpensive are you looking for?

Thanks for your reply, mpoll. A$100 is about what I was thinking of.

Mid-October will be past the peak season in Port Douglas so you should have no trouble finding accommodation. Maybe it would be best to just tiurn up and see waht is avaialable on standby. Try to get something close to the town. There are a lot of places on the road into town but make for a long walk to shops, etc.
