Our criteria to determine the biggest and best Oktoberfest events in Australia, 2022 was as follows:

Biggest = This one is easy. Based on historical attendance records. 

Best = The beer flows like air, the music lineup is quality, the venue / natural surroundings are beautiful, the Oktoberfest games, food, beer and festivities are authentic and the event doesn't attract too many sausages (men) to pretzels (ladies) i.e. the ratio is good.
