Cairns High School, Tropical North, Queensland

International Accreditation & International Baccalaureate World School

“Everyone, who is thinking on studying abroad, stop thinking – just do it. You will experience and be a part of another culture. And you will meet friends all over the world. At the end you feel like a new better person. Since I have been here in Cairns I’ve done a lot of things like snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef and Hiking. I love Cairns, I really like the weather.”
