Bangers, snags, sausages and wieners. German sausages come in all shapes, sizes and labels, and Bavarian Bier Cafe in Broadbeach is celebrating all of them! Hosting a month-long sausage fest from Feb 5th to March 4th, Bavarian Bier Cafe will be serving up a smorgasbord of sausage shenanigans, with over 20 different types of sausages up for tasting, including an Aussie Vegemite and Cheese sausage and the hottest sausage of them all, Pork and Habanero Peppers. Try a bit of everything with their Wurstfest share platter for $69, or take on their two-foot wiener to become the ultimate Wiener King. Of course, no German festival would be complete without alcohol, and Bavarian promises not to disappoint - With select German Beers available all month, it'll be a true German Celebration!

For as long as I can remember I’ve had a passion for all things creative, and so when it came time to choosing my degree it was only natural that I gravitated towards studying Creative Writing at Griffith University. I’m in my final year of University now and plan to graduate in November, but when I’m not out at University you’ll often find me curled up in some secluded corner of my house with headphones and a good book or brewing coffees down at my local Café. Occasionally you can also find me outside with my partner, family or dog, but only when the weather is warm enough. I love the rain and cold weather, but only if it’s outside and I’m inside. Born and raised on the Gold Coast, good beaches, good vibes and good company are some of my favourite things in life.
