Forget scones, jam and cream, as delicious a combination as that is — at The Lab's Showstopping High Tea in August, that classic setup is on hold. Instead, you'll tuck into Ekka-themed treats to celebrate the return of the Royal Queensland Show, with the spread available for just two days: from 1–3.30pm on Saturday, August 13–Sunday, August 14.

On the menu: fairy floss, strawberry spritzes and mini dagwood dogs, and even popcorn. There'll also be ribbon sandwiches, plus petite quiches and frittatas — and cakes and pastries with strawberries.

No, your sweet tooth won't go hungry here, and nor will your Ekka food cravings. And as for those spritzes, they're made with Brisbane Distillery gin, crème de framboise, framboise monin, cream and strawberries.

Also a big feature: bottomless sparking wine, although it's up to you if you add that to all the food. So, you can make your high tea a non-boozy affair for $50, which includes non-stop La Maison Du Thé French hand-crafted tea. Or, you can go for the Chandon package for $70, which comes with endless Domaine Chandon brut rosé, sparkling pinot shiraz and sparkling Chandon brut across two hours.
