    Some islands are kid family and others aren't. It depends what you want, cost and if your going as a couple or family.

    The Blue Mountains is a lovely place to go. There are stacks of things to do there. Leura, Katoomba, Wentworth Falls, Blackheath- all have amazing little shops and great places to eat. There is Jenolan Caves with stacks of beautiful cave walks that are an amazing sight. Mt Wilson is stunning, with gardens to stroll around in very romantic <3

    There are some lovely places to stay up there too. Romantic b & b's, farm stays, fancy old world hotels <3

    Let me know if you want more information. The Blue Mountains is our favorite place in Australia.

    Past Moderator - Thank you
    I would definitely recommend the Whitsundays. You hav e a lot of choice with various resorts, from more natural and relaxed places, to the full on luxury options.

    If you are tempted to go further north, be aware that November is the start of stinger season in NQ - which is fine for lazing about the pool etc, but you can't swim at the beach unless there are stinger nets. But there is a lot to do out of Port Douglas/Cairns even without swimming at the beach - four wheel driving up to the Cape, going out to Undara and the Gulf Savannah, the mountains/rainforest/lakes on the Tableland as Pina said. The crater lakes make swimming at a beach look possibly uninviting, they are so beautiful ... AND there are no stingers

    According to the Queensland Beaches website, stingers are present north of Townsville from October to June, and north of Gladstone/1770 from December to March.

    Another Queensland option, especially if you were interested in the Blue Mountains, is the hinterland areas of the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast - there are lots of lovely little "cabins in the rainforest" type places hidden away up there that are still relatively close to the beach. Look at Maleny/Montville/Mapleton on the north coast, and places like O'Reillys at Lamington on the south coast.

    Happy holiday planning!
