Tropic Weekender: Your curated guide to the best events across the Cairns region this weekend

Happy Easter long weekend folks. Let's celebrate!

But first, the weather forecast. Looks like we'll have a few rainy spells over the Easter weekend, with a mostly mostly sunny day on Saturday and partly cloudy and rainy day on Sunday. There's only a 50% chance of light showers though and maximum temperatures of 30C on both days.

This edition of Tropic Weekender features a range of Easter-themed events (of course) for you to enjoy with friends and family, as well as several markets and live music acts across the region. 

Whatever you do, make it an awesome tropical weekend!
