Club Activities

"Zur Bewahrung der deutschen Sprache und Kultur"

Our members regularly organise activities and events that bring together the German community in the Hunter. The types of events are driven by the various interests of our community and include:

  • Christmas and Easter Festivities

  • Cycling and Hiking Tours

  • German Meetups & Picnics

  • Lake and River Cruises

  • Oktoberfest Celebrations


Lake and River Cruises

The latest lake cruise took place on Sunday, 16th April 2023. 35 members and friends boarded the Nova Cruise boat at Booragul jetty for a 2.5 hrs lunch cruise around the lake. All enjoyed the day and the lunch buffet. Weather and wind were kind to us, nobody got seasick.

Meetups & Picnics

On Sunday, 28th of May 2023, the Germania Club had another picnic at Blackalls Park. In spite of the coldest May morning in more than 20 years 38 members and friends attended plus Louis in his pram. The party started on the Northern end of the picnic shelter where most of us were gathering a few sun rays. Eventually, it was warm enough around midday that we could sit at the tables in the shelter and have lunch. All enjoyed the jovial atmosphere with Heinz, Frank and Patrick playing their instruments and enticing us to sing along. Others mingled and chatted with old and new friends. Some more energetic individuals had to work off lunchtime calories by playing a few serious rounds of boule.


On October 12, 2023, thirty-four members and friends attended the Oktoberfest at Wangi Workers Club. The entertainment, which included the outstanding  accordion player Ross Mayo, was organised by Aunty Molly. All enjoyed the ambiance and get-together with old friends. Some were chosen to join the bell-ringers choir, which was a great success.
