If you are not completely sure of being able to come to Australia to live, STOP! Stop reading now. Because we warn you that, after finishing this article, you will have no choice but to take a plane and see what we are going to tell you, with your own eyes. Can you imagine turquoise water that, along with the vibrant green of the palm trees, only needs white sand and blue sky blue to make it look like an influencer with an addiction to the filters? Well, this is Cairns. Welcome to Paradise.
This wonderful city is located in the northeast of Australia and is home to the Great Barrier Reef, a World Heritage Site since 1981, whose extension exceeds 2,000 km of coastline. But in addition to diving, you can also go hiking in any of its many tropical parks so wild and characteristic of the area.
And speaking of tropical nature, the weather is also tropical, so you’ll have to face a rainy season and a drier one. The wet season is more than humid; We speak of monsoons, so be prepared to get used to the water out of the sea.
It is a small city, so you can walk to almost anywhere, although another option is the bicycle. But if your idea is to leave the city to explore the surroundings every week, you will have to take the bus operated by the company Sunbus.
The level of life of Cairns is considerably lower than in the big cities, taking into account that its size is also smaller. For this reason, the rents and the rest of your fixed expenses will be lower, although it is true that, also due to its size, the JOB OPPORTUNITIES ARE not too great.
