Emu Park Lions Oktoberfest is reputedly one of the best in Australia. Held in the small town of Emu Park, Queensland (near Yeppoon and Rockhampton) this event is the main fundraising activity for the Emu Park Lions.
The members of the club are assisted by dozens of volunteers from other clubs in Rockhampton, Yeppoon, Gracemere, Mount Morgan and others as well as scores of locals who all pitch in to ensure the success of the day.
Typicaly a crowd of around 3,000 locals and visitors from other parts of Queensland and other parts of the world will descend on Emu Park, book out all the accomodation here and in Rockhampton and have a great time starting at around noon.
The day will resound to the music of a German band and many other local and imported acts.
Food will include Tradional German potato pancakes (Kartofellpoufers), German sausages and of course good old Emu Park style steakburgers made with localy produced beef.
We could go on and on about the many types of German beers, the wine, the fun and so much more, but what you realy need to do is as "Molly Meldrum" would say, "Do yourself a favour", and turn up for one of the greatest events anywhere has to offer
