Where to Stay for Oktoberfest Brisbane 2016


There are some important preparations for attending Oktoberfest Brisbane that are better enjoyed together, so why not stay with your friends at a nearby hotel for this year’s festival.

Hotels aren’t just for those travelling from afar. Get the German vibes rolling as you and your mates meet before the festival to ‘kit up’ in your Dirndl and Lederhosen and get ready to celebrate.

On top of value for money, we’ve selected hotel partners based on location and convenience to the Brisbane Showgrounds (where Oktoberfest Brisbane is staged), so after dancing away to the Bavarian Oompah Band all night you won’t have far to walk!
