Oktoberfest

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 club will be assisted by hundreds of locals who pitch in to ensure the success of the day.  A crowd of over 3,000 descends on Emu Park each year to have a great time. The day will – as always- will resound to the fun and music of the Kalander Band who won the award for “Best Restaurant Band”  in Australian in  2008.  

Food includes tradional German potato pancakes (Kartofellpoufers), German sausages, sauerkraut, potato salad and of course good old Emu Park style steakburgers.   Come along and sample the many different brands of German and other International beers and join in the dancing and fun.
