Good idea to do it without a company- so unnecessary and expensive.
Cairns is very hot and steamy that time of year so all you will need is a couple of t-shirts, shorts/swimmers, sarong, thongs, runners, unless u wanna go somewhere u might need a collared shirt too (like a club or casino, in which case u also need covered shoes).
You can buy t-shirts n stuff fairly cheap so wait till u get here and buy anything else u need.
There are plenty of cheapo shops for clothes so buy as u go i reckon.
