Dust off your lederhosen or dirndl — Oktoberfest is returning to the Brisbane Showgrounds. Now in its eleventh year, the festival will extend over two weekends: October 5–7 and 12–14.

Australia's largest German culture festival spans traditional live music tents, Munich-style biergartens and carnival rides. An all-day lineup of live music — including Oompah band Münchner Buam, Heidi the Yodeller and Alpenrosen Dance Group — will keep visitors entertained while they eat, drink and celebrate all things Bavaria.

A handful of stalls peddling Christmas merch, traditional clothing and toys will also be on-site. There'll be plenty of food stalls offering hearty German cuisine when hunger strikes, including gravy-doused schnitties, candied apples, pork knuckle and sauerkraut. On Saturdays, you can also add a Bavarian brekkie and beer combo to your ticket, which includes two veal sausages served with sweet mustard, a giant soft pretzel and a weissbier (wheat beer).

On the topic of beer, the festival likes to keep things traditional: all beer served on-site has been brewed specifically for the event, following the Bavarian Purity Law, and all brews are served in steins. Not a big beer-lover? There'll be classic German wines and non-alcoholic drinks available, too.
