EARLIER: Looks like this weekend could be a wet one with possible showers and maximum temperatures of 31C.

Luckily for you, we've got some indoor activities that are perfect for a wet weekend.

We've got events such as the Screen Stories Screenwriting Workshop, and a stack of live music performances around the region, including Lady Valiant at Paddy's Irish Pub and Grill, Nikki Doll performing at the Casino and Cairns Blues Explosion at Elixir Tapas Bar.

There are also other exciting activities on this weekend, including the Ocean Film Festival, the Hannah Gadsby show at the Tanks and free entry at Cairns Regional Gallery.
