Ill be surfing in Oz in a few months.
Trying to book all the inter-Australia flights.
I was curious..is it worth going to see the Great Barrier reef? it takes almost 3 days out of the trip, the flight is a good 4 hours to the decent part (Cairns) from Torquay.
Definitely worth going to the reef but you have to go to byron bay too. And if your into the greenery make the hour drive west into nimbin from byron bay. They have a museum with the worlds largest spliff. Plus you may run into greenough in byron.
