Cairns, or as the indigenous Aboriginal Yidinji tribe call it, Gimuy, is the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, the Daintree Rainforest, and the cooler Atherton Tablelands inland to the southwest, and it is an ideal location for families. Moving to a new city in a different part of the world, however, can be isolating and difficult. The InterNations network can help you during the transition period and beyond to make new friends and settle in to your new life. The Expat Magazine is designed to help not only expats moving to Cairns, but it is of interest to anyone working abroad. The magazine gives advice on insurance, banking, social security, culture shock, as well as general advice on managing moves abroad and settling in, helping to reduce the stress of relocation. With such a wide range of topics, the magazine is sure to interest you, so take the time to read through its articles to be ideally prepared for moving to Cairns and joining the expatriate community there!
The InterNations network is an ideal way to find information on working in Cairns, and its membership is continuously expanding; so if you need help at all, there will be someone to advise on Cairns, its culture and the working opportunities available. International global networking is possible through InterNations, helping you to find similar professionals with information on relocating to new jobs abroad, and the experience of working in Cairns and elsewhere. Using the InterNations platform puts you in touch with fellow countrymen working in Cairns who can give you information on anything from business etiquette to the cultural differences and work practices you may encounter. Socializing with expats from around the globe establishes business contacts and a network of friends with which to enjoy the fantastic Great Barrier Reef, or the swimming lagoon and marina. Perhaps you might want to organize, or be a part of a trip on the Kurunda train and skyrail, taking you and your new-found friends on a day to remember!
