Family Fun Sunday - 9 & 16/10/16

Oktoberfest is the perfect chance for families to dress up in traditional German dirndl or lederhosen and learn about Bavarian and German culture right here in Brisbane. Families will enjoy a visit to Kinder Zone where some of the favourite kid's activities include a baby animal petting zoo, jumping castle, kids train, giant slide, dodgem cars and the popular "360 Dance Party" ride for older thrill seekers only. Other fun child-friendly events include face painting, Kindermusik classes, learn to speak German, circus workshops, yodeling classes, classic Kasperl-theater puppet show and "torwandschiessen" (iconic go-for-goal competition) with proceeds going towards the beneficial children's charity, Youngcare.
