Town Information:

Cairns is a pretty good place to live, we have all the attractions of the tropics , with an outdoor lifestyle but also the benefits of good schools, restaurants, shopping, entertainment that a medium size city can offer. You never have to drive far, and you can find a good plumber. The housing is affordable. Medically we are well supported as gps but not claustrophobic with specialists.

We use a deputizing service but if you wish you can provide your own nursing home and palliative care service, for example, as do some of our doctors.
