A bit of German in Sydney – Aussie Oktoberfest

Without a doubt, Aussie travellers are well-known as some of the biggest drinkers abroad. When you are travelling overseas, it is not surprising to find a bunch of Aussies downing many jars of beers at a German pub, or drinking cocktails from a large bucket on the Greek Islands. Indeed, alcohol is an universal language that is even more widely understood than English. Therefore, even though Munich is more than 10,000 miles away from Sydney, there is no stopping for the Aussies to celebrate the Oktoberfest, especially when it is a festival that encourages participants to drink as much German beers as they want. They have appropriated the festivities into an Australian context, so now you can drink like ze Germans!

Celebrating Oktoberfest at the Bavarian Bier Café is a no-brainer. As one of the premier German-themed restaurant chains in Sydney, the restaurant will organise a range of activities throughout October in order to celebrate the festival, such as Stein Hoist & Hold Challenge on Wednesdays and Stein Race on Thursday, in which the winner will get a $50 bar tab. Apart from that, discounts on German beers and pork knuckles will also be promoted during the whole month. Get ready to indulge yourself with some great German delicacies, and some quality booze, whether it is blonde or dark.

After the successful cruise party hosted by Sollarium Entertainment from last year, they have decided to throw the party at the prestigious club Ivy for this year’s Oktoberfest on 15th October! Co-organised by several student associates of the main universities in Sydney, it will be one of the largest student parties of the year. You may not be able to see weird-looking water slides or crazy roller coaster rides at the party, but please do expect loads of cheap booze and bouncing beats blasting for the entire night. And of course, get prepared to be surrounded by lots of sex hormones.

Yes, this is what you will see at UNSW Oktoberfest. While the party was cancelled last year, the student association ARC has decided to make a comeback at the Roundhouse, and the celebrations are extended to four days from 13th to 16th October. Apart from enjoying Wiener schnitzels and Frankfurt sausages, Hot Dub Time Machine will also make his appearance on the last day of the event and he will play tunes from the last 50 years. And the good news is, both ARC members and UNSW students will enjoy a discount on the entry fee!
