Moving from Cairns to Perth

Hi Everyone,

We're new to the forum and would love some advise if anyone can help!

My husband and I are originally from the UK and have lived in Cairns, QLD for 7 years. I work in the aviation industry and have been offered a really great job in Perth. My husband is happy to move, he works for himself & just wants me to be happy in my job too (which I've never really been in Cairns). My concern is that all I've heard is that Perth is very expensive & the fact that we visited Perth 7 years ago for a week and didn't like it, doesn't really inspired me. I'm so confused, do I go for the Job and maybe risk loosing a relaxed lifestyle that I have in Cairns or do we stay in Cairns with no career prospects???

I've read that Perth is 'righting' itself with regards to the cost of things, is that true?

Are there nice suburbs within 30mins to the airport that are close to the beach?

Any information would be gratefully received,
