The community spirit of Fernvale shines in any number of events offered throughout the year. Every Sunday morning, from 6am-12pm, the Fernvale Markets are open in the Fernvale Primary School grounds. You’ll find everything from local produce, poultry and plants to secondhand goods, books and handmade crafts and soaps.
Two events every year provide great entertainment in Fernvale: a Fun Run and an annual campdraft. The Fernvale-Lowood Trail Fun Run takes participants along the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail, with your 8K of running fun going toward a good cause every year, contributions go to a chosen charity. In 1947, the Fernvale Camp Draft Association was formed, and an annual campdraft is still held every year in March at the Fernvale Showgrounds. The showgrounds are also home to the Lowood-Fernvale Pony Club.
For everyday activities, stop in to the Fernvale Indoor Sports Centre, which opened in 2010. The Centre incorporates a gymnasium and a four court sports stadium, offering indoor cricket, netball, indoor touch football, junior indoor sports and cheerleading. If youre more of an outdoors kind of person, youll enjoy the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail, accessible at Fernvale Memorial Park, for horse-riding, cycling and walking.
