What do you love about Cairns?

That it’s like one big out­door play­ground. Love our ur­ban vibe with great spots to dine and lis­ten to live mu­sic and yet we have such easy ac­cess to the great out­doors, its lit­er­ally on our doorstep. Where is the best cof­fee in Cairns?

In the city Black­bird or Caffiend. Out in the burbs I’d pick Lim­ber­lost just for its set­ting. Great place to take the kids be­cause there’s but­ter­flies and wa­ter fea­tures and green­ery ev­ery­where.

What is your favourite thing to eat here?

I’m a sucker for good Ja­panese food which we have plenty of places to choose from. Or give me a night out shar­ing tapas, lo­cal beers and good com­pany.

How do you re­lax and un­wind?

I head out­doors with the fam­ily. It seems that we are more bonded and have more tales to share af­ter en­joy­ing an ad­ven­ture to­gether.

Favourite book?

Song­lines by Bruce Chatwin and Big Magic by El­iz­a­beth Gil­bert. But I’m a big fan of Na­tional Geo­graphic mag­a­zines for in­spi­ra­tion. Favourite movie? The Big Blue by Luc Bes­son.

Favourite lo­cal haunt?

Crys­tal Cas­cades or Stoney Creek for a week­day dip.

What makes you happy?

Be­ing out­side in na­ture. That’s why I love Cairns so much, the trop­i­cal vibe and that it’s just one big nat­u­ral play­ground for all ages to en­joy.
