No matter how you feel about your best mate’s future wife, you want him to have an amazing and unbelievable experience on his bucks weekend. Planning a stag weekend instead of a traditional bachelor party lets you and your whole gang get away for a few days or more. While you might stay closer to home, you can easily book a hotel room and have some adventures together on the road. You can pick a theme for the weekend and do things relating to that theme, or you can go all out and do something completely different every day. Just check out some of the fun things guys like you did on their bucks party weekends in Sydney.
Sydney folks have access to some of the most beautiful golf courses in the world. Start your trip at the Moore Park Golf Course, which has 18 holes and a convenient location near a golf academy. The Sydney Golf Academy can help you learn the fundamentals of the game or improve your swing. Long Reef Golf Club takes some time to reach but has amazing views of the North Shore. Other popular courses you might want to add to your itinerary include the Bondi Golf Club, The Coast Golf Club and Palm Beach Golf Course.
Experience Real Danger
For the best mate who seeks thrills at every turn, you’ll want to take the bridge climb at the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Often called the most impressive bridge climb in the world, your guide will take you to the very top of the bridge. Sitting at more than 130m above sea level, you’ll see a complete and total view of the city. Though you do need to register your group in advance, packages include an introduction to climbing class and a climbing guide who will help you along the way.
Guys who love fine dining will appreciate a bucks weekend away that takes them to all the gourmet dining establishments in Sydney. The city is home to award winning chefs and top restaurants at almost every turn. The Bridge Room ranks among the top 100 restaurants in the world, and Sepia won awards both in Australia and abroad. You can even pick a theme like farm to table cuisine and stop by some of the best restaurants on your stag weekend. These restaurants specialise in creating dishes sourced from local farms and stores.
Escape the Crowds
While some guys love the idea of snorkelling, scuba diving and just playing in the water, they hate the crowds found on the most popular beaches. When your group wants to kick back with some cold beers and have fun in the water, escape the crowds and hit up some of the hidden beaches around the city. Chinaman’s Beach has more than 250 meters of crystal clear waters and sandy shores, and its larger size will help you find the perfect spot for your group. Nielsen Park is another hidden gem that has clear water you can easily see through when snorkelling.
Blue Mountain National Park
Plan a stage weekend that no one will ever forget at Blue Mountain National Park. As the only national park in Australia listed with the world registry, it’s a popular tourist attraction that offers plenty of quiet spots for groups. While it is around 90 minutes away from the city, this park boasts almost everything your group needs, including hiking trails and camp sites. Bring along your tents, coolers and all your other supplies to enjoy sleeping outside after a long day of playing. You can even go swimming and canoeing in this park.
Dance and Dance Some More
Bicks weekend packages come with features like hotel rooms, car hires and even meals, but you may want to find things that you can do near your hotel. A great option for mates who love excitement is a night out at some of the hottest nightclubs. Chinese Laundry is a can’t miss location because it features three different rooms that play various music styles every night. For those who love electronic and techno music, One22 is the ultimate nightclub. Other local hot spots perfect for a stag night or weekend include Grandma’s Bar, Oxford Art Factory and Club77.
Adventure seekers will get a kick out of other attractions in Sydney beyond the bridge climb. Start the weekend off on the right foot with a trip to a go kart track. These tracks mimic the layout and style of major Grand Prix tracks and let you race at top speeds in Thunder Karts. You can then book a paint ball course and have fun trying to shoot at each other on the course. Other fun activities that adventure seekers love include activities like deep sea fishing and ATV tours in the wilderness.
Bucks Weekend Party Cruises
Depending on the size of your group, you may want to look at ideas for stag weekend activities that are appropriate for larger groups. Party cruises let you bring along as many guests as you want without worrying that you won’t have enough space, food or drinks for your whole crew. You can book a bucks party cruise that takes you all around the Sydney Harbour in the middle of the afternoon or late at night. Cruises come with amenities like food and drinks. Some cruises will even let you make arrangements for extra entertainment like cocktail waitresses or strippers too.
Ultimate Guys’ Night Out
Host the ultimate guys’ night for your crew with a private room that you rent in advance of your trip. Many Sydney nightclubs, restaurants and even strip clubs have private room rentals available for visitors. Work with the club to ensure that there is good food, great drinks and gorgeous entertainment waiting for you when you arrive. You can have fun playing a few hands of poker or playing some of your other favourite games as women dance in the background. Some strip clubs will even arrange a private show for the man of honour.
The perfect bucks weekend means different things for different men. Some men prefer a low key celebration that lets them golf at local courses, tour local museums or even check out the best restaurants with their friends. Other men prefer the excitement that comes from camping in the wilderness, touring the outback and taking ATV rides. Talk things through with your mate to get an idea of what he wants to do and what he thinks would make the perfect stag weekend before you start calling up clubs and looking for stag packages in and around Sydney.
