Flashback to our #GABA Winter Event!
We managed to get a little bit of a cosy winter market feeling, thanks to Gotzinger Smallgoods putting a great sausage barbecue on, German Beverages Australia for creating a wonderful, smooth and warming winter drink with their juices, and Businesses Driving a Difference by Advivo Accountants and Advisors for the beautiful location!

It was great to see so many of you, all nicely rugged up for the special winter feel.

Our next event will be a joint event with the GACCQ German Australian Community Centre Qld, we are looking forward to coming together for an exciting night at the Qld Multicultural Awards!

Thank you everyone for coming along last Thursday to our EOFY Year event. It was fantastic to see so many of you - members and not (yet) members coming together for a fun nigh of drinks, nibbles, and hilarious tax tips and accountant jokes (don't forget to collect your knife receipts if you are a professional knife swallower!).

We would also like to thank our sponsors for the fantastic raffle prizes - we had some very happy winners:

Sunshine Castle
Götzinger Smallgoods
Cafe Beesting
Min & Co Coffee
K&K Austrian Restaurant
German Beverages Australia
King of Cakes

Our next event will take place on Thursday, 25th July. We hope to see just as many people or even more then, when we create a proper winter market feeling outside with (not only) the smell of Bratwurst and Glühwein.

Dear GABA Members and Friends.

We trust you have had a wonderful Easter with friends and family.
Unfortunately, there will be no event in April, as it was difficult to bring everyone together due to the holidays.

However, we are back in May. This time GABA is hosting a joint social event with GABWA on Thursday 16th May.

Stay tuned for more details.

35 Years of GABA Celebration

Dear GABA members and friends of GABA,

We would like to thank all of you who joined us last Friday to celebrate 35 years of GABA, your presence made the night as delightful as it was. It was wonderful to see you on this fantastic night enjoying a delicious meal and the stunning view of the Story Bridge and the Brisbane river.

Thank you to Adrian Schrinner and Matthew Bourke for being a part of our celebration and contributing with refreshing speeches, and thank you to the Honorary Consul Michael Rosemann for his welcome speech and supportive words.

It was a great pleasure to have John Kahlert speaking, giving insights into the formation of GABA, the development of the association and past events, and then to finally welcome founding members of GABA to the stage to cut the (needless to say - delicious) cake as one highlight of the night.

We hope you all had a fantastic time, especially those of you who won one of our exciting raffle prizes. Thank you of course to our generous sponsors, we would like to thank:

Oktoberfest Brisbane for an Oktoberfest surprise pack including an Oktoberfest voucher
Deep Grey Photography for 4 Vouchers
Denk Ceramics for a Waxburner Indoor and a Waxburner Outdoor
