The Yarra Valley’s Oktoberfest was a rallying point for many locals to carouse with friends from afar.

With a variety of food trucks, German entertainment, DJs and, of course, beer, the festival attracted more than 1600 punters, all dressed up in their finest dirndls and lederhosen.

Organiser Mel Grice had more than 10 beers imported straight from Munich for the day, which were of course the main draw card for punters.

“We had the pretzel eating competition, a stein holding competition and we actually broke last year’s record and also had a female winner who held the stein out straight with one arm for over 10 minutes,” she said.

“The entire event has gone off without a hitch, and it’s been great to see everyone having so much fun.”
