    You know you are from Cairns when:

    YOU don't break out in a sweat until the temperature hits 30, you know a hundred ways to clean mould off the furniture during the wet season and pay a fortune on home insurance. You might be from Cairns.

    Unlike Hipsters from southern states who are constantly focused on trivial trends, the Cairns local participates in no such fodder, You have bigger fish (and crocs) to fry.

    The Cairns local is friendly to new people and for those who move to the Far North from other parts, if they are able to fit in, they will soon turn on anything too far south of Wooroonooran National Park.

    Does this sound like you? Read on, here's some other signs you might be from Cairns.

    1. You consider a rental property without air-conditioning inhumane.

    2. You don't get out of bed for anything less than "category 3'' during cyclone season.

    3. You have superstitions about the letter 'M' and some hesitations about 'W'.

    4. You stop swimming once the temperature drops to 28 degrees - Only people from Melbourne swim in those conditions.

    5. You only go to the Cairns CBD to work because you know all the spots the tourists have never heard of.

    6. You think $5000 for house and contents insurance per year is a fairly reasonable quote on average. You probably have a neighbour who pays twice that.

    7. You like Mungalli Creek Dairy non-pasturised milk in your coffee and you know where Mungalli Creek Dairy is and can spell Millaa Millaa correctly.

    8. You think long sleeve shirts and ties are only worn by Victorian business people in Cairns for a conference.

    9. Road rules are optional and 40km/ph is the new 60km/ph.

    10. You think crocs less than 2.5m long are "only little''.

    11. You have a permanent thong tan on your feet.

    12. Your thongs are constantly having a "blow-out" thanks to a combination of sun and salt water.

    13. The only insect repellent you recognise is heavy duty with extra DEET.

    14. You wear white linen - lots of it - but wouldn't be seen dead in a sarong - that's just so touristy.

    15. When the temperature hits 23 degrees you start to feel a cold.

    16. You have bat poo permanently fixed to your car.

    Lol agree with all of these, guess I have acclimatised well.

    Tip of the day: Use the plastic clip from a loaf of bread under your thong :)
