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

    It is expected to be mostly sensational weather in Cairns this weekend - partly cloudy with maximum temperatures of 28C.

    It's Mother's Day weekend and there are stacks of great events to make the mum in your life feel special.

    For something different, you could take mum to one of the FNQ Rugby games, or the French Film Festival, or one of the many live music gigs around the place.

    For maximum brownie points, why not spoil her with a weekend in Port Douglas at Carnivale?

    No matter what you get up to, have a great tropical weekend!
