Even though the branch is only seven years old, Inner Wheel has been making a difference to communities on a global scale for the past 100 years.

Celebrations began when Inner Wheel Australia president Susan Chisholm visited in November and continued on 10 January when the club held a celebration on Inner Wheel Day at the Tolga Hotel. 

Members were dressed in 1920s-style and brought along souvenirs which members had to guess where they were from. 

The key objectives of Inner Wheel  is to host social events, creating friendships while raising funds for worthwhile projects.

The club has been supported by local charities such as Carinya Aged Care, Moyamoya Australia, Access Place, Malanda SES, Tree Roo Rescue, to name a few.

Inner Wheel members are committed to their national project which is raising funds for Cord Blood Research where 62 grants have been given worth nearly $4 million. The vital research undertaken by these dedicated researchers has had enormous results in areas such as leukaemia, cystic fibrosis, immune deficiencies and neurological brain disorders.

As an International organisation, the club supports projects such as KIVA, Water Wise, Fistula Hospital in Ethiopia, and more.

The Inner Wheel Club of FNQ Tablelands invites women who enjoy social engagement and meeting new people to join them at their monthly meetings held at the Atherton International Club on the second Tuesday of the month from 11.30am.
