Southwharf Promenade

South Wharf Promenade, Melbourne

Greta Donaldson Publicity worked with the traders at South Wharf Promenade, Melbourne to raise a stein or two - as South Wharf Promenade celebrated Australian and German cuisine with their inaugural Oktoberfest Festival on Saturday October 4. This year's ambassadors Luke Darcy for Triple M's Hot Breakfast, Byron Finnerty from MasterChef and Brodie Harper from Postcards, helped promote a leisurely German-themed family day. The Oktoberfest Festival united lovers of food, fun and culture on the banks of Melbourne's Yarra River. Timed to coincide with the final weekend of the iconic GermanOktoberfest, South Wharf Promenade's Oktoberfest Festival included activities by each of the venues housed in the lovingly restored cargo sheds of the promenade, as they embrace the look and feel of a bustling Munich village. The Oktoberfest Festival was designed to appeal to everyone - offering a wide range of food and drinks with festival highlights including plenty of free entertainment for kids, including face painters, balloon artists, caricaturist and an Oom-pah band, and keg tapping, German slap dancing, acoustic performers and DJ's for the adults. Home grown musicians embraced their inner German at this year's Oktoberfest Festival. Singer-songwriter from The Voice, team Will.I.Am Julian Simonsz performed in the Bier Garden Marquee, as did female singer-songwriter Al Parkinson and 20-year-old singer-songwriterGena Rose Bruce, while headline act - Michael Paynter played to a packed marquee, followed by DJ Jane Daffy. South Wharf Promenade's carefully curated tenancy list celebrates the old and new faces of Melbourne's dining landscape to ensure a mouth-watering culinary experience and one of the most beautiful waterside views of Melbourne. Opened in 2012, South Wharf Promenade is located on the South Bank of the Yarra River, near DFO South Wharf, Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre and the Hilton South Wharf. Few precincts in the world can boast a world-class convention centre, a 5-star hotel, a quality retail centre, a National Trust treasure like the Polly Woodside and some of Melbourne's best bars and restaurants. www.southwharfpromenade.com.au southwarfpromenade on Facebook Twitter (@swpromenade)
