Get out your lederhosen or dirndl, strap on your dancing shoes and get your tastebuds ready, because Oktoberfest Brisbane is back for another year and the 2016 event is set to be bigger and better than ever.
Oktoberfest Brisbane is Australia’s largest (and best) Oktoberfest celebration, complete with a traditional beer garden, entertainment hall, carnival rides, plenty of German beer and of course, more salty pretzels than we can count.

It’s one of the annual calendar events that gets us excited each and every year, and I can someone you know has a dirndl or lederhosen in their wardrobe, saved for Oktoberfest Brisbane every year. It’s so much fun, and it’s spread out over two jam-packed weekends, so there is plenty of time to gather your crew, don your traditional German threads and head to Oktoberfest Brisbane with an empty stomach and big smile.
