Tropic Weekender: Your insider guide to the best events this weekend


Bit of rain around this weekend, but with maximum temperatures of 28C and hopes the weather will clear on Sunday, there's plenty options in the 34 events we have for you this week.

If you need to stay indoors to avoid the rain, check out some of the live performances are all around the region this weekend, with Out of the Blue playing at Fuller Sports Club, Lady Valiant live at the Tin Shed and the Rockabilly Show at Elixir Tapas Bar.

For those brave and/or silly enough, there's Karaoke night at the Red Beret Hotel.

Regardless of the weather, as always, have a great tropical weekend!
