Hi

Firstly- if you want a job, and live overseas, you would need a working permit.
There are many many backpacker hostels in Cairns- use Google to choose.
You might also consider looking in Port Douglas area- its only 90mins north of Ciarns, and there is a bus going north. Port Douglas is great- scneic, good beaches, and closest to the reef.

Hello,

I think one of the cheapest and still best hostels in Cairns is JJs Backpackers. However, it is not a party place, so it depends on what you want!
If you decide to stay in Cairns and want some longterm accomodation, you could try Cairns Sharehouse, or Cairns Homeshare (if you would like to stay with locals). I described everything on my Cairns Pages.

For jobs, you can try to find a job in hospitality, in a hostel (reception and cleaning) or even on a boat. Depending on the season, fruitpicking might be an option as well. But as already has been said: You need a Working Visa first!
However, I would not rely on finding a job in Cairns, because so many backpackers go there and it is a very popular location. If you are not lucky, you could try to find a job in the Atherton Tablelands or even in Cape York, or go further south the coast.

If you really need to save money, maybe you can find a hostel where you can work as a cleaner for about two hours a day and stay there for free instead of being paid. This is quiet common!

Travel Tips for Cairns

Tips for Selecting a Reef Expedition

by dlandt

An expedition to the reef is a fairly standard commodity and, though they charge in different ways, you will generally pay the same amount no matter what company you choose. What you want to use to guide your choice of a reef excursion are other considerations.

1. What part of the reef is the boat going to visit.? You might want to revisit the site of a previous dive, or you might want to see something new, but they go to the same spots every day, weather dependent.

2. How fast is the boat? Obviously, slower boats stay closer to shore, and you spend more time getting from point A to point B and less time in the water doing what you paid for.

3. How big is the boat. This is important for those of you who get seasick. A bigger boat is more stable, has a higher resistance to rough seas and is generally more comfortable.

4. Where does the boat leave from? Does it leave from the docks in Cairns, or do you need to take a long trip up to Pt. Douglas in the wee hours of the morning? Boats that go to the northern part of the reef, known for its clear water, generally do leave from Pt. Douglas.

5. Food.

6. Number of dives and the number of times they move the boat.

7. How many snorkelers will be there? Snorkelers generally take up a lot of space in the water and can crowd your dive ladders. The fewer there are, the better.

8. The ratio of divers to divemasters. The lower the better. Clearing my mask and suddenly seeing the exotic fish in all their color. It just kind of dawns on you that everything everyone told you about the wondrous sights is true, but that there really aren't words to describe it. About the best comparison I can make is being in someone's carefully maintained fish tank, filled with brightly colored fish you've never seen before.

Millaa Millaa Falls

by aussirose


Millaa Millaa Falls is a few hours south west of Cairns. There are a number of tour operators that will take you to Millaa Millaa Falls.

This waterfall is one of the most photographed in the whole of Australia and I can see why!
You can swim out to the falls and climb up behind them, as we saw a number of people doing. But I was just happy to watch the spectacular view!

I'm happy to say I have been to the falls twice.... first time on the wonderful day adventure that tropicrd took me on (see travelogue below) and secondly I just had to recommend it to Zig & hubby as a quick photo stop off on our big trip across the top end from Cairns to Darwin.

Virgin Blue Airlines

by Gypsygirl05

Virgin Blue Air provides reliable, relatively cheap transportation around Australia. I got some great deals with Virgin, and I never had issues with cancellations, delays, or anything similar. Highly recommended!

Great Barrier Reef

by cone

Of course you have to see one the seven wonders of the world when to opportunity arrives. You can take boat rides every morning from the habour.

It's possible to either snorkle or dive, diving is prefered, since you can get closer to the reef sharks when diving. Don't worry they aren't dangerous, they're not bigger than you are.

Go Diving Obviously!!

by paradisedreamer

The best thing about Cairns is its proximity to the Great Barrier Reef. The diving is fantastic and you are sure to see lots of fish, anemones, reef sharks and even turtles if you are lucky. Of course there is tons of brightly coloured coral as well.

All the dive trips are pretty much the same, it takes a couple of hours to get to the reef you do your first dive, have lunch and then move onto another reef for your second dive in the afternoon and then back to Cairns.
