5 destinations for your Buck's Weekend!
The structure of the traditional Buck's night has undergone a radical transformation in recent years. In the past, the Buck's party was held on the night before the wedding and was seen as something of an endurance test of bar hopping and wild goings on – the groom's last chance to behave disgracefully before he settled down into respectable married life. These days, Buck's parties have evolved into fully-blown weekends of fun and thrills, a chance for family and mates to get together and send off one of their nearest and dearest with some good old-fashioned male bonding thrown in. If you're running low on Buck's ideas and need a bit of inspiration, why not check out some of the stag weekend suggestions on the following pages and see if we can help you decide on the perfect send-off for your mate.
Buck's Weekend Sydney
If you're looking for non-stop excitement and heaps to see and do, it's hard to go past all that Sydney has to offer for a Buck' party organizer. Daytime activities such as jet boating, go karting, clay pigeon shooting, tandem sky diving or even a round of golf, lead naturally into sampling some of the nightlife that Sydney has to offer, like nightclubbing, playing the tables at the Star City Casino or visiting a gentleman's club. Check out some of the weekend packages on offer and see if there's anything that suits your needs.
Buck's Weekend Gold Coast
Queensland's Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast are great places to base your group for a weekend of Buck's fun and games. Water sports such as game fishing, boating charters, sea kayaking and scuba diving can be prearranged as part of Buck's packages as well as land-based activities including paintballing, quad biking and laser skirmish. And once darkness falls, there are all the bars, restaurants and the hedonistic delights of Surfer's Paradise and other party zones to keep you entertained till dawn.
Buck's Night Melbourne
The Victorian capital has loads to offer a group of blokes looking for some action. Time your Buck's weekend right and you could start off the festivities with a day at the horse races and a flutter on the ponies. If racing doesn't appeal, maybe watching a game of football or a cricket match at the MCG is more to your tastes? If you're rather take part than watch, investigate the go-karting, river fishing, racecar driving and shooting activities available in and around the city. Try to book your Melbourne accommodation near the centre of town so that you can go bar hopping amongst the pubs and wine bars that the city is famous for. Another great option is to get an accommodation package at the Crown Casino that gives you hotel rooms and gaming deals for a poker night you'll never forget.
Buck's Ideas Perth
If you like the ocean and water, Perth is a wonderful place to plan a Buck's getaway. Check out the sports fishing, jet boating and yachting and sailing options, whilst if you fancy something with a little less adrenalin, maybe a cycling tour of some of the outstanding WA vineyards could be a winner. Other sports and activities to consider include paintballing, kayaking, parasailing, a trip on a party bus or a poker night at the Burswood Casino.
Buck's Weekend Adelaide
If you thought Adelaide as a sleepy little place, think again. Fishing trips, rally driving, abseiling, bungy jumping, golfing packages and wine tours can all be booked for Buck's parties spent in the SA capital. And once you're had your daytime fun, head out for some drinks and food in the city centre. Another great Buck's idea is to hire a party boat, fill it with mates and give your friend the last night of freedom that he truly deserves.
