Hear from others who have relocated to Far North Queensland to teach and lead with Cairns Catholic Education.
Michael Rowe, his wife Rebekah and their four children left Horsham, in western Victoria, in 2020 when he took up the role of principal at St Rita’s School in Babinda, a rural town an hour south of Cairns. He said the family had always planned to travel around the Far North, but when his job opportunity came up they decided to make the move permanent. “We’ve got a young active family. We just want to take them out and get them into the great outdoors,” Michael said. Check out the Rowe family’s new adventures and relaxing lifestyle in Far North Queensland.
Aimee Murray and Karina Brady moved from Melbourne to Far North Queensland to teach with Cairns Catholic Education – and they fell in love with the region. Karina said it “blows her mind” that she can visit the tropical resort town of Port Douglas whenever she feels like it, and Aimee loves taking her kids for mid-week visits to the beach.
