It’s a little quieter around the traps this weekend, as most of us haven’t quite recovered from the epic weekend that was Carnivale, but there is plenty on offer, including a Colour Run tomorrow morning to help celebrate National Reconciliation Week, The Rubens at the Port Douglas Yacht Club live on the lawn on Sunday evening (assuming they’re not coming up from Victoria 😉 and the premiere of the first episodes of Dive Club at the Clink on Saturday night-spot the locals!
