 Welcome to the weekend!

While the weather isn’t looking so flash for water-based adventure, there’s plenty of entertainment and things to do on land. Our hot tip-Mount Molloy National Hotel tonight with Dave Cooke, Yungaburra markets tomorrow while you roadt rip along with JJJ’s Top 100 and chill on Sunday afternoon by the pool at Plantation Resort to the sultry sounds of Lady Valiant.


What is the weather actually doing?

A weak trough extends across the far northern Peninsula and offshore over the far northern Coral Sea. A weak ridge along the east coast will strengthen over the next two days as a high near Tasmania drifts slowly into the Tasman Sea. Winds will be 15-20 knots east-southeasterly for the next couple of days, dropping to 10-15 knots on Sunday.
