Monique...When we first discussed the possibility of a 2010 Oktoberfest in Jundah none of us were prepared for its HUGE success from day one. What a sensational bush experience. I know Tourism Queensland were knocked out with the world wide publicity your Oktoberfest generated..deservedly so. I am in awe of the Jundah community...the way they all got behind the idea and turned it into reality, those wonderful schoolkids singing Christmas Carols in German, the 100% response to the request to tog up..Bavarian style..the oom pa pa band, those delicious frothy ales -it looked, tasted and sounded brilliant...well done..may there be many more Oktoberfests in Jundah..Lance Smith.

"It may not be what anyone would expect from a small outback town, but the Jundah Outback Oktoberfest is an event not easily forgotten. There is an amazing sense of Australian spirit as the town rallies together to raise money for such a great cause. With cultured food, astonishing entertainment and incredible people, Jundah sure puts on one hell of a show! I would go back in a heartbeat."
My husband Colin and I attended the 2011 Oktoberfest at the Jundah Hotel. What a weekend. The hotel grounds were beautifully decorated and took on the mantle of a Bavarian Village. Monique and Shane, the owners and, I suspect, half the town had gone to a lot of trouble to create a welcoming and warm atmosphere. They were all clearly out to show people a good time. People began arriving on the Thursday night to start sampling the beer. . We dressed in costume as did many others, both old and young. We fitted into the over 60"s but there were frocks and German Knickers available for us to join the merry thong.
We had German fare (very tasty and plenty of it) German beer, German music, even the German language was evident. The dancing and the sheep race were my favorites. The sheep race was held in the main street under lights. Much to my disappointment my sheep did not win. The weekend continued with the races on Saturday and sitting around the garden listening to a lady from Germany playing the accordion and a couple of Irish songsters. All in all we had a great time. Now that I am retiring I am thinking we might head up there again. Monique hope to see you and thank you very much for looking after us so well.
Good afternoon Monique!!!
Outback Oktoberfest is an instrumental way for a small town (and the pub),
to support a much needed event to raise much needed funds for a part of
Queensland's rural sector.
So many of our city brothers and sisters overlook just how "the bush"
survives. Outback Oktoberfest is one of the high lights, growing from
strength to strength for all to come & let their hair down & kick up a
little dust & really experience the "true salt of the earth" hospitality.
With the events programmed & atmosphere created, whether your 25 or 95
it'll be a hoot & a roar you won't forget. The Jundah pub oozes warmth,
laughter, yarns and experiences you'd normally only read about between the
covers of a great outback book. Musicians, poets, shearers,
truckies,opal miners & graziers are only a few of the wonderful local
rub shoulders with.
Add to that professional entertainers to highlight the event & you'll be
pleased you made the effort. If it's the only one thing you do this year,
I'd recommend you make it a date claimer, circle it on your calendar to be
there and if you over do it, well..........you have 12months to re-charge
your batteries. ha ha ha!!...
