If you or one of your mates is about to tie the knot, there is no doubt that your (or his) life is about to change for good. And while this change may be a very happy one, there is still something bittersweet about saying goodbye to one’s bachelor days. To make it memorable, an amazing bucks party is in order—and Melbourne has no shortage of options for an unforgettable night. No matter what you and the guys are into, there is something for everyone. Here are the top 10 ideas you should consider.
Doing something you’ve never done before is what will make this day one to remember. From zip-lining through paragliding all the way to whitewater rafting, there are a lot of adrenaline-pumping activities at your disposal in the city of Melbourne and nearby. If you are a lover of sports and the thrill they give you, pick something like this and you’ll have a blast!
You don’t have to jump off bridges or race at insane speeds in order to pump that adrenaline. In fact, for those who are on the geeky side and whose idea of a good weekend is 10 hours of consecutive gaming, a truly fun and memorable bucks night idea could be entering VR mode. Melbourne has a good array of VR experiences. Fight zombies at Zero Latency or pick a cool escape room and test your friendship.
Are you a bunch of craft beer lovers? Then there’s no question that a brewery tour will get you just as excited as a zombie apocalypse. Look behind the scenes and get a taste of the best of the best. Start your adventure with a brewery tour and you’ll be all set for a night of fun!
Melbourne has access to the amazing Yarra River and, rest assured, makes the most of it. So, why not take your bucks party on a ship and party like you’ve never partied before? You can sign up for a luxury cruise or even hire a boat and enjoy a private atmosphere. It’s a truly stylish way to celebrate.
If rather than antique breweries, you are more interested in the vibrant nightlife of Melbourne, you will love the idea of bar-hopping through the night. Not only will you be able to see what the hype is all about and check all the best bars, but you will also get tosee the city this way, making this a mini holiday if you’re not from the area. Be sure to make an itinerary with all the best bars and you’ll have an amazing night!
There is no better opportunity to give in to your inner desire to test your luck at a casino than a bucks night. Book a poker table, try your hand at roulette, or shake those red dice. In fact, you don’t even have to go to a casino to play your favorite card games. Book a hotel room and create your own den!
Poker isn’t only about the cards. This is your bucks night, after all, so boosting the experience a bit is what’s going to make it unforgettable. Look for a salon where topless dealers will add a bit of spice to your games, or even take it further by visiting a trustworthy brothel in Melbourne.
Blow off some steam with paintball
If you feel like you need some hands-on experience to truly blow off some steam with your mates, then you can also consider a classic: paintball. Few things pump your adrenaline like the thrill of paintball, and it’s great especially if you have a larger group of friends. The fun is worth all the sores!
If shooting paintball markers is not enticing enough, you may want to consider the real deal. Raise the stakes and hold a real gun in your hand by going for a clay shooting experience. You will see that aiming is not so easy after all!
Finally, few men would say no to a round of go-kart, and if your friend group is itching to sit behind the wheel, perhaps this will be the perfect bucks before-party. Melbourne has a number of go-kart tracks, so you should be able to book a race even on short notice.
A bucks night should be a fun adventure, so pick what you like and don’t hold back! Make some memories with your friends before the next chapter of your life begins.
