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


The weekend ahead is going to be a wet one folks - but what's new lately?!

Weather forecast says we're in for a cloudy weekend with maximums of 32C. Thankfully, there are a range of activites both indoors and out for you to enjoy no matter what the weather gets up to. 

You can rock out to Aussie music legend Paul Dempsey at the Tanks or cheer for your favourite team at the AFL Cairns Pre-Season Cup.

For the arty types, you can check out the Doc's Day Off photographic exhibition (featured in the latest issue of Tropic Magazine).
