Love Cairns? Tell us why! Email firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
