    I spent 2 yrs living in Cairns when my kids were toddlers....loved it!!! We lived in Brinsmead, which was lovely. Lots and lots to do with young kids.

    I've lived in Cairns for the last 9 years (and been visiting and living for the 10 years before that).

    We love it here. It is great for kids. Don't be put of by the touristy CBD. The rest of the place is great.

    Others have mentioned the suburbs to choose (and avoid).

    If you love outdoor activities (camping, hiking, boats or 4wds) there is heaps to do. The reef and rainforest. I could go on and on.

    Downsides, if you family is down south they can feel a long way away. The wet and cyclones can get a bit tiresome.

    Depending on what your DH does for work there are opportunities, particularly in some professional fields, but you probably aren't going to earn as much as possible down south.

    I am from Mission Beach, (2hrs south of Cairns). I can't comment too much on Cairns but just wanted to say the far north is a great lifestyle. I really miss it!
    It's not for everyone though, my partner cannot stand the heat, so I doubt I will ever be able to settle back up there sadly.
