An hour and a half south of Cairns is the town of Innisfail, all though small it offers more than many picking and packing towns. There are 4 main Hostels which all cater for travellers looking for work. There is employment offered all year round, although in the winter (still stupidly hot) it does slow down to about 3 days a week. If you want to party stay at Walkabout Hostel. If you want a great place which offers self contained accommodation from $33 per night, air-conditioned rooms, clean facilities, free use of washing machine and incredibly helpful staff go to Codge Lodge.
