Cairns is the ideal location for our international students to explore the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropical rainforest. Apart from the beautiful surroundings our younger students are also coming here to discover this small, energetic and friendly city as part of their language program with EF. For years our host families in Cairns have been welcoming our students and played a key role in their experiences abroad.
Our host families come in all shapes and sizes; single parent households, empty-nesters, couples with no children, and families with small children or with teenagers. You are expected to provide a bed, three meals a day, transportation to a conveniently located meeting point and, most importantly, a stable, caring environment.
