What is it like to live in Far North Queensland? What little things to people do to adapt to the weather? What do people think about? NOT looking for tourist information.
As I continue to freeze to death
at the end of the New England winter, I am dreaming about a place I've always wanted to visit: Far North Queensland. But there's plenty of touristy info on the web--I want to know what it's like to live
there. What kinds of industries are there? What are the sunsets like? Does the rain drive people crazy? What do people do for fun? How does the weather change as you go south to Cairnes and then Brisbane? (DumbAmericanFilter) is there still a strong sugar cane industry, as described in the novel The Thorn Birds?
One of these years I'm going to spend my winter, your summer, there. Thank you!
(I've read the several articles about Queensland over the past few decades in National Geographic
, and they have been helpful in a general sort of way.)
Bonus question: is the weather generally the same in Queensland as it is in Darwin and the Northern Territory? Another interesting place to visit, I'll bet.
