I guess depends on where you're comparing it to. We moved up from sydney; thus in comparison Cairns is a lot better. You do get your odd crime here and there but not much compared to other places like sydney. The other key aspect i think is picking the right suburb. ;)

KarenTaylor It would be interesting to see the per capita crime rate - Cairns seems to have a lot of crime in the inner city and walking around the inner city of cairns I do not feel safe. You need to move to smaller towns to live in a place with a genuine low crime rate - just my opinion .... but look at statistics - facts dont generally lie ...

Stanley Nonga I would avoid the M suburbs, Smithfield is in North Cairns and is a great place to live

lyn-vegal Do you say avoid the M suburbs based on flooding? I read this somewhere today, or for other reasons?

jm11 Def avoid m suburbs due to relenting petty crime. However read the latest stastics and you will find even the best suburbs ( traditionally) are in a crime wave. Just look at the 20 or so percent youth unemployment !

Inner city including M suburbs, Bungalow and Parramatta Park are hot spots. White Rock and Mount Sheridan are also no good. Check QLD police site to see the reports. The figures don't lie and the patterns are obvious.

As at April 2012 The police here have had a drive to catch and prosecute those few (families) people ythat are always doing burglaries and petty crimes. It's worked a treat. The Cairns City Circle, as defined by out to Edge hill and about Cairns North and somewhat past Stocklands, is quiet, safe and very pleasant o live in . The large apartment blocks in Manunda and Manoora area are providing terrific value ($140-20k) and are good safe areas to be in. Probably once a bit iffy, but great now.
