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

The weather is clearing up for this weekend with sunny skies and maximum temperatures of 31C. No threat of cyclones this weekend... only plenty of activities for you and your crew to enjoy!

We have activities that suit everyone's pleasure; from sport to art to music to performances, we've got 35 different events for you to choose from.

For sports fans, the Northern Pride take on Burleigh Bears, and FNQ Rugby and AFL Cairns teams take to the field. For a bit of a fun and a good cause the Dynamic in a Dress Running Festival is on, as well as the Discover Sailing Day.

If you missed it last week, the Sound of Music is on again this weekend at the Clink Theatre, as well as the big food event Cairns on a Fork. 

If the weather permits, you could also grab the kids for a bush or rainforest walk using our brand new ultimate guide to the best walks for kids.
