Any holiday that is about eating great food and drinking great beer is our kind of event. If you feel the same then check out the best places to celebrate Oktoberfest in Perth.
Oktoberfest is one of the world’s biggest celebrations of the fine art of beer making (and drinking). In Germany over 7 million litres of beer will be drunk over the 16 days of the festival. In Australia we probably won’t drink that much, but we can certainly try. With your help, obviously.
