My fiance and I are currently planning our honeymoon for May 09 and are thinking of a trip to Oz which would include Sydney, the Whitsundays and Port Douglas.
I'd be very grateful if anyone 'in the know' could help me out with two questions.
- Having searched through the net and on this forum I am very confused as to which island would suit us best.
We are looking for a tropical paradise island with 5 star luxury accomodation. From my research the Qualia is one of the most luxurious hotels in the whitsundays and gets amazing reviews however it doesn't seem to have a white sandy beach but more a small pebble one?
Can anyone tell me what the beach situation is with the Qualia?
I'm also concerned at comments about Hamilton Island being over-run with tourists?
My second question is regarding the weather. Many of the weather charts i've look up give conflicting temperatures. What is the average temp we can expect in the Whitsundays during May?
thanks in advance for you help.
