Love Cairns? Tell us why! Email ed­i­to­rial@cairn­spost.com.au I first came up to Cairns in ‘91 - it’s my third time liv­ing here. I’ve been here four years, this time. I just en­joy it, and the life­style - it’s pretty easy­go­ing and it suits my per­son­al­ity. I en­joy go­ing to the pub, and play­ing a bit of golf ev­ery now and then, down at the Cairns Golf Club. I’ve lived in Mel­bourne and - it’s funny - the CBDs are set out the same, the block sys­tem. Cairns re­minds me of a mini-Mel­bourne, so to speak. But of course, it’s a cul­tural waste­land up here when it comes to sport­ing events, and con­certs. I love my AFL, and I love go­ing to the metal con­certs which you just don’t get up here. But you make a sac­ri­fice and weigh up the op­tions, and I’d rather live in weather like this, than go through a Mel­bourne win­ter again.
