I've been to Bora Bora and loved the time we had rain free - we went in December/January and only had about 3 days of the 8 without any rain. So be aware of that when you choose when to travel.
In terms of getting there - it wasn't difficult - we flew from Brisbane to Auckland and then from Auckland to Papeete. The connection times from memory weren't great but we did get lounge access in Auckland (nothing was available for us in Papeete on the return). You will need to stay a night in Papeete both when you arrive and when you depart. From memory the flight arriving from Auckland (Air Tahiti Nui) arrived very late and the connections through to Moorea and Bora Bora were not until midday the next day. The inter-island planes are all dash 8 or similar. Air Tahiti Nui was great and it was a pleasant flight.
Have a great time! It is a beatiful place and the people are lovely. We stayed at the Four Seasons and I would recommend that no matter where you stay, you get rates which include full board. It's expensive anyway, but if you don't have full board it is eye watering. We had half board (breakfast and dinner) and the staff at breakfast would send us away with snacks etc. as lunch was just crazy expensive.
Make sure you try swimming/snorkelling with the reef sharks and rays - lots of fun.
