    Tropic Weekender: Your insider guide to the best events this New Year's weekend

    This weekend is all set for a massive celebration to ring in the new year.

    There'll be maximum temperatures of 32C and possible scattered thunderstorms, but don't let that deter your party spirit.

    You can choose from a colossal list of New Year's Eve events, including celebrating the last day of 2016 at the Cairns Esplanade, Hemingway's Brewery, the Reef Hotel Casino or QT Port Douglas.

    On top of this, you can spend the first day of 2017 at a range of recovery parties, from AJ Hackett's to the Splash Pool Party.
