For those living or looking at moving to Cairns have you considered looking at work in PNG. Papua New Guineas primary industries are agriculture, mining, petroleum and gas, fisheries, forestry and manufacturing. PNG is the 6th largest growing economy in the world and has never defaulted on an overseas debt. Exxon Mobil is the largest project at the moment, worth $16 billion and employing over 15,000 during construction. There are already a number of Cairns residents who FIFO (Fly in Fly Out) and most of the companies have their own flights from Cairns to PNG - the flight takes 1hour 30 minutes.
