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

The weekend is here... time to relax and enjoy some great activities across the Cairns region.

But first, the weather forecast. It looks like the rain will continue this weekend with a 70% chance of showers on Saturday and a 60% chance of showers on Sunday, though only up to 10mm. Maximum temperatures will be 30C on both days. 

But don't let that dampen your weekend plans. The latest edition of Tropic Weekender features a broad and long list of great stuff to do across the Cairns region, including performances, sporting events and even a high tea.

Whatever you do, make it an awesome tropical weekend!
