In your opinion where would you rather live while staying in Northern Queensland and why?
Any Input would be greatly appreciated. My decision of where to live for the next year or so relies heavily on your input. :)

Was only ever in Cairns in Northern QL, it's sleepy little touristy(ish ) town actually is a bit bigger than it seems though about 122K popuation, weather is usually hot(obvioulsy) but in the wet season can downpour, pretty cool.

It's worth a visit, great for moutain biking if our into that, loads of tour packages as well and tons of hostels, i'd have thought you could pick up a job there not to hard , but i can't imagine you could stay there as a traveler for very long, would get pretty boring and caustraphobic. I guess much of the towns up there are the same as Carins.

I've only been in Cairns and Townsville - was not terribly impressed with either. If I went again, I think I'd head for the Whitsundays:
