The Far North provides lifestyle opportunities unlike anywhere else in the world, with stunning rainforest, pristine waterfalls and idyllic lakes nestled throughout the region, and the Great Barrier Reef on our doorstep.

Yet, we’re still about as connected as a region could be, with our major domestic and international airport meaning we are only a short affordable flight to most state capitals. Learn more about our amazing lifestyle here.


Not only is living and working in the Far North Queensland a great lifestyle move; working with Cairns Catholic Education is also a great place to build your professional career.
