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


    There'll be some scattered showers around this weekend, with maximum temperatures in Cairns of 27C.

    But don't let any potential rain keep you indoors... we've rounded an amazing haul of 41 different activities for you to enjoy this weekend.

    Check out one of the FNQ Rugby or AFL Cairns games or head up the hill to the big Northern Nats Springmount Racing event.

    Visit a market, rock out to some live music performances and don't forget 'Constellations' performed by Queensland Theatre Production. For a dose of provocation, watch "The Coming War On China" documentary by John Pilger at the Centre of Contemporary Arts.

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