OKTOBERFEST BRISBANE 2017
It’s time to don your dirndl and lederhosen and get ready to celebrate Australia’s largest German festival— Oktoberfest Brisbane. The Brisbane Showgrounds will be transformed into a mini Bavaria, where festivalgoers can indulge in traditional German cuisine like bratwurst and pork knuckles as well as Black Forest cake and other goodies. Add to that specially brewed beers all the way from Germany and world-class wines to have the true Oktoberfest experience.
6–8 and 13–15 October, Brisbane Showgrounds, 600 Gregory Terrace, Bowen Hills. oktoberfestbrisbane.com.au
