The Australians are very friendly and wonderful hosts. No problem with children, but the food is different, so you might want to bring something for your child to eat if he or she is not inclined to try new foods.

Not BYO - Ochre is a Fine Dining Experience, you don't want to rock up with your esky :) They could cater for 18 - you'd have 18 of the most satisfied people in Cairns afterwards - my favourite restaurant.
