1. Cairns is warm.
All year round, Cairns is pretty warm which sure beats cold weather.
2. Cairns is on the ocean.

3. Cairns has a mountain range.
There are literally hundreds of hikes and waterfalls within a cheeky drive from Cairns.
4. Cairns is quiet.
The population in Cairns is less than 200k, so don’t expect to wait too long, for anything.
5. Cairns is cheap.
The small population and lots of housing mean that renting and buying property is much cheaper than any other city in Australia.
