Herzlich Willkommen 1.10. – 14.10.2018


More than Autos and Lederhosen…!

Germans began to settle in Australia from 1838, prominently settling in South Australia and Queensland, which is now the second-largest and third-most populous state in the Commonwealth of Australia. More than 12,000 Germans call South Queensland Home.
Germany has a reputation for its highly performing economy, science, excellent research and education as well as sports and its diverse cultural scene while ensuring principles of quality, innovation and sustainability. Despite being thousands of kilometres apart, Australia and Germany share many of these traits. Learn about German-Australian ties and experience German diversity first hand during Brisbane German Week 2018.

The event promises to integrate and portrait all important facets of the German-Australian relationship. It will span a fortnight of colourful events including a national German language competition with an expected 5,000 participants, days of Science and Innovation, Business and History, a classical concert on the Day of German Unity (German National Day) and, of course, Oktoberfest Brisbane.
From 1 to 14 October this year, Brisbane will showcase its educational, scientific, economic, political and cultural connections to Germany in cooperation with schools, universities, businesses and numerous other organisations. This initiative is proudly supported by the Lord Mayor’s Suburban Initiative Fund!
We look forward to welcoming you at many of our events and celebrate all things GERAUSSIE…..  Bis bald… !
