Is your luggage booked through becuse you are on QF for both flights? Are the flights on the same PNR? Is the HI flight always on time into Cairns? You should ask the airline ex CNS to clarify.

Sorry i missed this before.

In terms of getting through the airport it is more than ample. Assuming you are on Cathay, your luggage should be checked through from HTI so all you will need to do is immigration procedures. Cairns is a very small international and ti will take you no more than 5 minutes to change terminals. Immigration is quite efficient there as well.

If it was booked as interline agreement then you should have no issues.
