This is my first post, im looking for a little help on deciding where to go in northern aus, for the winter (dry season). My choices are Darwin and Cairns but i cant really decide between them! Id be looking to get a job when i arrive, so my main question would be which is better for jobs?
Also im considering the ultimate oz two day package, does anyone have any knowledge of those outside the main sydney one?

Ill be travelling alone, so any help now would be great!

I'd say Darwin would be easier for jobs, but it would probably be general work like cleaning or labouring. Cairns would be a nicer place to spend your time, it has more to offer and more travellers passing through.
