    Will we like Cairns?!

    Hi to everyone. This is my first post, but I've been reading posts for ages and have found Poms in Oz to be an absolutely brilliant source of information. Anyway, we are hoping to go to Oz next spring, possibly...and have already got our PR. Thing is we would really like a big change for our family, a different lifestyle, so have been seriously considering going to Cairns. But I wanted to ask about a few of my, or really my hubby's, concerns..he thinks it may be disappointing to move somewhere where we can't really swim in the sea. Is that generally true? Does it matter?? Also, I wondered if mossies are a problem. We have 4 kids: boys aged 11 and 13, and girls aged 5 and 3, and so health/safety issues are important. We are on a very tight budget to do this, and I get the impression that property is fairly reasonable compared with say, Melbourne which we have also been thinking about. Is it expensive in Cairns, would you say? Thanks in advance for any help/info on any of this. Imogen
