Midway between Townsville and Cairns, Mission Beach has always been well-known for its picturesque beaches, perfect climate, thrilling skydives and its high population of dinosaur-like birds known as cassowaries.

But as of this year, there’s a new trick up their sleeve…an epic Oktoberfest party!

Yep, you read that right. Germany’s most famous festival is popping up on the Cassowary Coast, and it’s going to be a weekend for the ages.


Glad you asked!

Mission Beach’s premier Oktoberfest event will be held at Mission Beach Resort, from Friday 4th to Sunday 6th October. 2019 is the official opening year of this event – there's going to be a rope cutting and everything!

Each day, the festivities will be commencing at 10am and finishing at 8pm, with live entertainment from 4pm to 8pm. But there’ll be something to keep the good vibes rollin' all day – heats in stein holding competitions, best-dressed contests, beer pong, stein races and more, followed by an epic finals showdown!

There'll also be a mouth-watering spit roast and salad buffet available from 5:30pm and snacks available all day, to help soak up the beer.
