I'll be in Cairns in July as well (Air NZ direct flight from Auckland). Haven't looked in to fishing options yet, but following the thread.

It's quite cheap and I have never been to the barrier reef so thinking this might be the year

I couldn't recommend any charters sorry, I had a boat up there.

If targeting GTs mostly likely you will be flicking stick baits/ poppers. However it's also worth trolling diving bibbed lures, Rapalas/ Halcos etc while moving between spots and also having a live bait out while bottom fishing for other species. I caught a lot this way and not many others seemed to do it
