Where to celebrate Oktoberfest in Canberra 2016

It’s almost October, and you know what that means? The world’s largest beer festival is looming. We’ve rounded up the best places to celebrate Oktoberfest in Canberra.

Any holiday that is devoted almost exclusively to drinking beer and eating heaps of food is our kind of holiday, and the world seems to agree. This year Oktoberfest will be celebrated on every continent. If you’re in Canberra during the festival, then you’ve got a couple of great options to join in the celebrations, including one of Australia’s most popular Oktoberfest parties.
