Break out the lederhosen and dust of that dirndl

Saturday September 16th, 2017

Oktoberfest season has arrived and we’re giving you SO many more reasons to get amongst all the Brilliant Bavarian action of the world’s biggest bier festival. The catch? Unlike Germany’s annual festivities, no passport will be required for this unforgettable experience!

We’re kicking it all off with three thigh-slapping, toe-tapping, schnitzel-chomping, stein-swilling Oktoberfest Street Parties right across this great country of ours! These parties will be jam-packed with a full day line-up of outrageous Bavarian shenanigans that you’re bound to write home about (or at least Instagram).

From our ceremonial keg taps of our 4 official biers, through to our first inaugural Dogs of Oktoberfest Costume Contest and Australia’s only Oktoberfest Parade, this is one day of festivities you simply cannot miss.

With extended outdoor seating, pop-up bier tents, stages, Oom-pah-pah bands and so much more, we’ll keep the Oktoberfestivities (and beer!) flowing until late. This promises to be a party of epic proportions and one you’ll kick yourself if you miss.

Gather the gang, clear the calendar and BOOK IN NOW before the best seats in the haus are all schnapped up!
