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


It’s definitely getting chillier in Cairns, as our weekend weather forecast story here explains.

What a great excuse, then, to rock out to a live gig or enjoy the festivities at the Spiegeltent at Port Douglas Carnivale.

Don't forget the Northern Pride play at home on Saturday, and to finish your weekend off the right way with a cocktail at Gin Social on Sunday afternoon.

Whatever you decide to do, have an awesome tropical weekend!
