Classic Car Show
Motoring enthusiasts were happy with the return of the Classic Car Show to the Inaburra Fete in 2017. On display were some retro American models, British Classics, a rare 4 door red/white pillarless Chevy ’57 model and an authentic ‘Back to the Future’ Delorian! We are looking forward to what will be on show in 2018.
The Chocolate Challenge or Chocolate Toss is a tradition at the Inaburra Fete and a definite crowd pleaser. Chocolate always has and always will attract kids (and a lot of adults too!) like a magnet.
One of the best ways to see if Inaburra is the right school for your child is to visit us on Open Day (Saturday 12 May 2018) and take a school tour with one of our Year 9 Student Leaders. Tours will operate throughout the day from 9:00am until 3:00pm. Discover our new Senior School Learning Commons, Stage 3 Learning Centre and Sensory Playground, all ground-breaking educational spaces, officially opened in July 2017. Read more about our new developments in this Media Release.

Flower Power generously donates all the potted plants to Inaburra Fete, including an assortment of herbs and seasonal flowering potted colour. This stall is always a favourite and sells out so you need to get in fast.
MBC Tea Room
The Menai Baptist Church Tea Room is a must-do at the Inaburra Fete. On offer are a selection of delicate pastries, croissants, cute cupcakes, strawberry tarts, biscuits and donuts. Enjoy a Devonshire Tea with freshly baked scones and your choice of tea in a proper china cup. The team at MBC set up a stunning display with decor sourced from local businesses.
