The Inverai Pioneer Memorial Hall

Over the past 95 years, the hall has hosted many community gathering including weddings, dances, mock debutant balls and more. Today the hall is used for community events, agricultural field days and the annual Inverai Christmas Party.
The name sake of the hall, Inverai's pioneering farming residents, transformed thick brigalow scrub into one of Queensland's premier dairying areas. The pioneers also bred and grazed cattle on larger holding and held campdrafts across from the hall, demonstrating their horsemanship skills
