Hey everyone,

I arrived in Cairns last week. Starting to get my CV ready for job hunting. Any ideas the best way to find work? Its very competitive at the minute due to there being so many backpackers. There is so farm work going outside of Cairns due to it being off season and cyclone destruction. Any help would be appreciated.

Hey Jamie,

I wouldnt stick around Cairns as its got one of the highest rates of unemployment. I was there for a month but its so populated with backpackers during the winter period.

If your looking for any work in Hospitality the best place for yous to go is Port Douglas which is an hour north of Cairns. I got a job my first day I arrived there as its the busy season and I ended up staying 2 months.
