Study in Cairns

Overview

Cairns serves as the perfect home base to explore a variety of natural wonders such as lush rainforests, tranquil streams and lakes, beautiful white sand beaches, and of course the incomparable Great Barrier Reef located just off the Cairns coastline. Living in Cairns also means living in an international city, with an airport serving four major Asian airports and road signs translated into two to three languages.

Nature and Climate

Cairns has a tropical climate with two very marked seasons. The wet season in summer is usually hot and humid, with temperatures ranging from 23 and 30ºC. The dry season in Cairns is mild and dry with an average temperature of 18ºC. There are many natural wonders just within reach when you live in Cairns. Immerse yourself in the incredible azure waters of the ocean and swim with flat-backed tortoises, clown fish and hammerhead sharks. Cairns is also surrounded by lush nature. In the Daintree Rainforest you can see typical Australian animals in their natural habitat: emus, crocodiles, snakes, kangaroos, wombats, koalas, dingoes, kookaburras and the famous Cassowary (now endangered).

Arts & Culture

In the evening the city becomes a real continuous flow of people from all walks of life. Whether you are looking for authentic Asian cuisine at the iconic night markets or clinking glasses with new friends at one of the mainstay Cairns bars – there is a real energy and charm to this part of Australia that you simply can’t find anywhere else.
