Diffuse any wedding stress with these fun and indulgent ideas for your nearest and dearest.

For the Girls

Enjoy a pampering package at Harbour Day Spa

Day Spa Pampering
Get prepped for your big day with a mani and pedi or really relax with a pampering package which incorporates scrubs, wraps and massage. Our picks include Brisbane’s Apollo Day Spa, home to Queensland’s only Korean-style Bathhouse and an array of pamper packages perfect for hens, and Harbour Day Spa in Raby Bay Cleveland which offers day packages including a gourmet lunch with stunning harbour views.

High Tea
A high tea is an elegant way to get the girls together. Indulge in petite treats, fine teas and French fizz, all served in fine china and crystal. Luxe! Find some of Brisbane’s high tea hot spots here.

For the Boys

Get Racing
Get behind the wheel of a V8 race car and take to the raceway like a speed demon, guided by experts. Queensland Raceways offers fully customisable drives – choose from passenger laps, five or eight lap driving experiences, or even MX5 training days.

Get Sporty
Watch your favourite game in style, from a corporate box! The food and drinks are laid on and the view is spectacular. We love the GABBA’s open-air corporate boxes which allow you to soak up the atmosphere while enjoying the award-winning hospitality.

For Both

Perfect Packages
Take the stress out of organising your party with Wicked Hens and Wicked Bucks. Your own personal event planner will organise one of their tempting packages (most include a night’s stay on the Gold Coast) or create one especially for you. For hens, look out for Grape Times Winery Tours, Naughty Hens Night In, Cruise, Dine and Party hens weekends and Cocktails in Paradise Party. For bucks there is the Bucks Hangover Weekend, Bucks Paintball and Party, Bucks Ultimate In Room Poker and Bucks Ultimate Kart Attack.

Theme Parks
Theme parks are a great place to bond – over an old-fashioned ice cream or your shared terror as you brave the roller coasters. Experience all the fun of the fair at Aussie World Theme Park on the Sunshine Coast or hit the Gold Coast theme park strip where you can hold your breath for the Big Drop at Dreamworld, get into character at Movie World or sidle up to a seal at Seaworld. For summer fun we also love Whitewater World, packed with water slides and rides.

Vegas Style
Promising ‘Vegas-style limousine nightclub experience’, Key to the Coast is a stretch hummer experience which pops in to some of the coast’s buzziest night spots. No designated driver needed! Pile your ‘hucks’ into a pink or white stretch hummer and get set to party with bars, widescreen televisions, plush leather interiors and laser lighting! Ask about their New Hyper stretched SUV which seats up to 14 people.

Murder at the Abbey
Don a masquerade mask and get your best sleuthing skills ready at Warwick’s historic Abbey of the Roses. They offer Murder Mystery Masquerade Dinners for 12-24 guests. It’s real life Cluedo (with the bonus of Champagne and canapés).

Cook Up A Storm
Cooking classes are a great way to pick up some new skills and bond over tasty dishes. Choose a venue that’s close to a variety of bars and clubs so the party doesn’t have to end when the class does or head to the hinterland where you can make a weekend of it. Check out James Street Cooking School in Fortitude Valley, the renowned Spirit House, Yandina or Spicers Tamarind in Maleny which offers Thai cooking school and and beautiful rainforest accommodation.

Winery and Brewery Tours
For a creative take on a traditional pub crawl, winery and brewery tours are the way to go – with a chauffeur of course! Visit the iconic XXXX Brewery in Brisbane or craft breweries which are dotted from Byron to the Sunshine Coast. Local wineries are found in some of the state’s most picturesque locations with many offering delicious dining as well. Try Sirromet, Ocean View Estates, O’Reilly’s Canungra Valley Vineyard and Albert River Wines.

Play All Day 
Live music fans will love a day out seeing their favourite bands or DJs and enjoying a few cleansing ales. Book accommodation or camp nearby to keep the bonding experience going. Try Splendour in the Grass, Big Day Out, Bluesfest or Future Music Festival.

Cruising
Queensland’s crystal-clear waters rival those anywhere in the world, so enjoy the sights and company on a luxury catamaran. Hire a skipper for the ultimate experience – just sit back, Champagne in hand, and cruise through paradise.
