Here are some links to some of my local Cairns friends who have fantastic businesses that are certainly worth a look;

Greenant Gear

This local business creates unique handprinted local designs of some of the more bitey or nightime types of creatures that live in our area. Their designs are bold and bright and their tshirts are really good quality. Here is the link
