7/10

contra: there's nothing (on the pics) which makes the city distinguishable from others. The quality of the buildings designs is rather avarage...
pro: the city looks very clean and liveable, the surrounding landscape is simply beautiful. I'd love to live there

I love Cairns. This city is one amazing piece of Northern QLD. Its a rapidly growing city, and the skyline is really starting to grow. Give it about a decade and it will be a 7. I honestly give it an 8. Cairns is awesome. I travel here about once a year. The scenery is amazing, and The Great Barrier Reef is right there. This city truly is amazing.

Well it will be worth a visit. Travel right down the QLD coast to Townsville, Brisbane, the Gold Coast. You won't be disappointed. In June I will be traveling to Toronto.

Glad to hear you're visiting in June. It's a pleasant month in Southern Ontario.

Cairns is a nice little city, but its skyline is not its strong point. 'Nearby' Townsville is better for skyscrapers, although many would say it's not as pretty as Cairns. 4/10.

Far North Queensland.

The space between Cairns and Cooktown is one of my favourite spots in the World.

This is along Hartley Street which is about to be transformed with two new commerical towers and a hotel tower. The Cairns Convention Centre is also along this street
