Tropic Weekender: Your insider guide to the best events this weekend + BONUS Holiday Program

There'll be clear skies and maximum temperatures of 34C over the weekend, but don't let the heat stop you from leaving the comforts of your air-conditioned loungeroom.

This edition of TropicWeekender even features a few events that'll be pumping the air-con in any case, such as the special screening of the Nick Cave documentary at the nicely chilled Grafton St cinema complex and the Cairns Taipans vs Brisbane Bullets in the pleasantly mild surrounds of the Convention Centre.

For the sporty types there's the Cairns Aqua Park Session, the Botanical Drawing Workshop for the creative types and for those wanting to get into the Christmas spirit, there's the Sensory Santa event at Stockland Shopping Centre happening as well.

It's all in the TropicWeekender guide, now with a BONUS Holiday Program list!
